Sunday, March 28th: “Who Am I?” This morning we join the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence, MA for an inspiring service led by the Rev. Janet C. Bush. Who am I?” asks Moses, “that I should go to Pharaoh and free the Israelites?”   A reflection for leaders, followers and everyone who believes they are neither or both. Their congregation will join UUS:E on Sunday, May 2nd. Register for the USNF Zoom room here. Or watch the service on the USNF YouTube channel.

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.

Sunday, April 11: “On Becoming You.” As spiritual beings we are shaped by both internal forces and external events. We consider what it means to be true to your essential self and the different sources of guidance on this continuing path to becoming you. Contributors: Peggy Webbe and Dorothy Bognar. Coordinators: Beth Hankins and Kristen Dockendorff

Sunday, April 18: “Earthrise for Earth Day!” This morning we celebrate Earth Day 2021 with a
service designed in response to Amanda Gorman’s 2018 poem, “Earthrise.” Coordinators: members of the UUS:E Sustainable Living Committee, Gina Campellone and Rev. Josh Pawelek

Sunday, April 25: “What is Prayer?” Is prayer about getting? Giving? Expressing gratitude? Perhaps all of these things and more. Join us as we explore prayer and its meaning in many contexts. Coordinators: Mary Bopp and Marsha Howland

Sunday, May 2: “Telling A New UU Story?” As we continually look forward to post-pandemic
congregational life, let’s pause to reflect on the stories we tell about who we are as people of faith.
Given what we’ve been through over the past year, do our older stories still resonate? Might new
stories be emerging? Coordinator: Rev. Josh Pawelek.

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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] or 860-652-8961.
