“Visions and Legacies – A Service of Remembrance”
Rev. Mary Frances Comer
Each year, around the time of All Souls, we have our annual “Legacy Sunday Service of Remembrance” during which we pause to remember and name loved ones we’ve lost this year. We will also hear from Legacy Circle Members as we consider the importance of this Beloved Community in our lives. Today, we seek to honor the past and provide for the future.

“The Art of Forgiveness”
Rev. Mary Frances Comer
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. [If we are] devoid of the power to forgive [we are] devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us.” The art of forgiveness sometimes takes courage but always offers clarity, and helps us clear the path to move forward with our lives, freed and unfettered by the weight of the past.

“Tikkun Olam – Repairing a Hurting World”
Sam Treadaway, guest speaker
One of the real gifts of Unitarian Universalism is the freedom to find truth and beauty from all sacred traditions. Join us as we explore a progressive understanding of “tikkun olam”, an ancient Jewish expression. As “neighbors”, we will worship together – leaning on the words and works of a “very special” Presbyterian minister, who modeled kindness and healing throughout his life.
