Message from the Minister


As December unfolds, we find ourselves entering the sacred season of Advent—for UUs it is a time of reflection, anticipation, and preparation for the arrival of light in the midst of darkness. It’s a moment of hope, a time to embrace the spirit of unity and love that binds us together as a community.

Advent has us explore the themes of hope, peace, joy, and love—inviting us to reflect on these core values that enrich our lives. In the spirit of the season, let’s come together to spread warmth and kindness during this festive time.

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.”~ Emily Dickinson

“Peace is not something you wish for; it’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.”~ John Lennon

“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”~ Christopher McCandless

“Love is the ultimate expression of the will to live, the life force, the power that drives us to protect the ones we love.”~ Sophia Lyon Fahs

In the spirit of the UU principles and values, let us come together in love and understanding, embracing our differences and celebrating our shared values.

May this season of Advent remind us of the importance of compassion, empathy, and unity. Happy Holidays to you all–Happy Hanukkah, Bodhi Day, Solstice, Mawlid al-Nabi, Yule, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Years.

As we journey through this sacred time together, let’s hold each other close in heart and spirit. May the blessings of hope, peace, joy, and love fill your homes and hearts abundantly.

Blessings and Warm Wishes,

-Rev. Will
