Sunday, Oct 26Service: Risking Reality and Racism
Rev. Megan Foley

The recent killings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown open up a national wound that most of us desperately wish weren’t part of our American reality.  Is there any upside to being reminded of our racist legacy?  What will happen if we risk seeing what’s already there?

Sunday, Nov 2Service: Day of the Dead Service: At The End of Your Rope?
Rev. Megan Foley

There are plenty of ways that religions try to make meaning of death and loss, and sometimes those are helpful.  But other times, we’ve suffered so much from our losses that we are really overwhelmed with grief and despair.  What do we do when we’re in this place?  What can church offer us when we’re at the end of our rope? Bring pictures and mementos of your loved ones to place on our Day of the Dead altar.  This worship service is for all ages.

Sunday, Mar 22Sunday Meditation Service

The Sunday meditation group meets for silent meditation, reading and sharing of insight on Sunday mornings at 9:00am, prior to the main service.

Welcome!

You’ve found your way to a remarkable congregation practicing a remarkable religion. Unitarian Universalism is a liberal, creedless faith, born out of the Judeo-Christian tradition, that takes two tasks to heart: freely exploring spiritual truth, using a broad range of religious sources and our own inspiration and reason as guides; and loving our neighbors without qualification, as best as we are able. At Sugarloaf in particular, you’ll find a range of people from a variety of backgrounds who come together regularly to celebrate what’s most important to them, support each other in life’s hard moments, and to be a part of a community that matters and cares.

Sugarloaf is located in an idyllic setting and is filled with friendly people. We invite you to come and experience our religious community at Sunday worship. You are welcome here whoever you are: however old or young, wherever you are from, whoever your ancestors were, and in whatever religion you were raised. You are welcome here whatever your gender and whomever you love. You are welcome with whatever abilities and limitations you have. We invite you to bring your whole self.* We know that your presence will enrich the Sugarloaf community – and that Sugarloaf will become a special place for you, too.

If you have any questions about the Sugarloaf Congregation of Unitarian Universalists, Unitarian Universalism in general, or just want further information, please don’t hesitate to call or email me. Better yet, just come down on Sunday morning and see what we have to offer. You’ll be glad you did.

See you at Sugarloaf,
Megan
