Message from the Minister

Dear Beloved Community,

As we step into the month of February, a time traditionally associated with expressions of love, I can’t help but think about the legacy of Hosea Ballou–we can explore the profound concept of love that is at the heart of our Unitarian Universalist faith.

     Love Beyond Boundaries

Hosea Ballou’s philosophy of Universalism was centered in and through boundless love. Let us reflect on how we, as a community, can extend our love beyond the confines of our immediate circles, embracing all beings with compassion.

Love as a Guiding Light

We form a community, special each week, with the ideal of personal spiritual growth. We grow when we engage one another, when we reflect on the privileges we might have and the ways to use those privileges to help others, and we act in ways that build solidarity.

Acts of Love in Action

Each Sunday, we light candles and shine a light on the various acts of love happening within our congregation–supporting one another in times of need, and times of joy– let’s celebrate the many ways we embody love in action.

Spiritual Growth: Love-centered Practices

Whether it’s meditation, prayer, or mindful living, let’s come together to explore how these practices can deepen our connection to the universal love that unites us all.

Get Involved: Share Your Love Stories

We invite you to share your personal stories of love – moments that have touched your heart, acts of kindness that have inspired you, or reflections on how love has transformed your life. If you’re willing, your stories could be featured in our upcoming newsletters, creating a tapestry of love within our community.

As we navigate through the month of February, let us embody the spirit of Hosea Ballou and make love the cornerstone of our interactions, both within our beloved community and beyond.

Peace, Love and Understanding,

Rev. Will
