We’re glad you’re visiting our website! On this page you’ll find some sample sermons from our Minister and lay leaders. We don’t publish every sermon, but this will give you an idea of what our sermons are like. In Unitarian Universalism, we have a “free pulpit” tradition, which means our ministers or guests are expected to preach on whatever the spirit calls them to address, rather than follow a lectionary or other liturgical calendar.
What to Expect When You Visit
Our Worship Services are in form much like many Protestant services – we have readings, a story for children, hymns, a time of meditation and prayer, and a sermon. However, the sources of our readings, the variety of types of children’s stories, the words of the hymns and the meditation and prayer time reflect our liberal religious approach. We do not often use Biblical readings although on occasion we do. We use readings from world religions, from earth-based spiritual traditions, from science and philosophy, and from authors and poets.
