Sunday, February 28th: “Bear Witness; Save Lives.” This morning we welcome C.B. Beal back to our virtual pulpit to continue our conversation about preemptive radical inclusion. How can we live up to our promise of being a truly welcoming, inclusive congregation? Coordinators: Gina Campellone and Rev. Josh Pawelek

Special note: CB will return to UUS:E (via Zoom) for a special workshop on preemptive radical inclusion on Saturday morning, March 13th from 10:00 AM to noon. Watch our March newsletter and weekly eblasts for more information.

Sunday, March 7th: “We Have No Secret Knowledge!” As we kick off our 2021 Annual Appeal, Rev. Josh reflects on the spiritual gifts we receive from Unitarian Universalism … and the ones we don’t. Coordinator: Rev. Josh Pawelek.

Sunday, March 14th: “Worship with the Unitarian Universalist Association.” The UUA is offering a denomination-wide stewardship service featuring Revs Chris Long, Mariela Perez-Simons, Vail Weller and president Susan Frederick-Gray. We will watch from UUS:E’s regular Sunday service Zoom room, followed by Joys and Concerns and Breakout Rooms.

Sunday, March 21st: “Doing the Right Thing.” We are often told to “Just do the right thing,” but that is seldom easy. Malcolm Barlow, long time UUS:E member and local attorney, explores the questions, “What is the right thing? How do we know? How do we decide what to do? How are our UU Principles involved?” Coordinators: David Klotz and Martha Larson.

Sunday, March 28th: This morning we join the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence, MA for an inspiring service led by the Rev. Janet Bush. This service will focus on the Jewish celebration of Passover and the leadership of Moses. Their congregation will join UUS:E on Sunday, May 22nd.

Sunday, April 4th: “Break Forth Into Joy.” Join us for our all-congregational Easter Music service. As the nation slowly comes back from the coronavirus pandemic, we absolutely need a spring-inspired celebration this year! Coordinators: Mary Bopp, Gina Campellone and Rev. Josh Pawelek.  PS: You are invited to submit recorded music. Music about Easter, springtime and spring season holidays or anything that makes you feel springy would be great! If interested, contact Mary Bopp.

For the first half of 2021, we will continue to hold one virtual service every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM using Zoom. For now, Zoom login and call-in information will be shared through the congregational eblast. If you are not subscribed to the congregational eblast, please send a message to e-news@uuse.org or contact Annie Gentile in the UUS:E office at (860) 646-5151 to arrange another method of receiving relevant information.

In order to keep Sunday services as relevant as possible to our situation, Rev. Josh and the Sunday Services Committee will not be planning services as far in advance as we usually do. If there is a particular topic related to our collective experience of the pandemic that you’d like us to address in the context of a Sunday service, please feel free to share your ideas with Rev. Josh at minister@uuse.org or 860-652-8961.
