“Soul Matters” theme: Wisdom
Unless otherwise noted, services include sermons preached by the Rev. Andrew Clive Millard and take place at 9:30am and 11:15am on Sundays.
March 1st: “Love It or List It”
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula will be making a big decision this month, a decision that will determine our future for years and decades to come. As we prepare for that, let’s keep in mind that the UUFP is not the physical structure in which we meet for services and programs; rather, the Fellowship consists of the people who form this religious community.
March 8th: “We’ll Build a Church!”
Let’s celebrate who we are as a congregation and the promise of who we are becoming. We have an exciting vision before us of who we want to be, we have members and friends committed to sharing their time, talent and treasure, and we have the love and support of the wider Unitarian Universalist community. Whichever way the vote goes, the UUFP is building a new way!
Special music will be provided by the UUFP ChorUUs!
March 15th: “A Time for Unconventional Wisdom”
We are living in times where trust in social institutions, government and religion has eroded. Division and polarization have torn apart the fabric of our country. We need reconciliation, healing and love. Conventional wisdom alone won’t cure our social ills; times like these call for “out of the box” thinking: these times call for Unconventional Wisdom.
Rev. Sherman Z. Logan, Jr. is Executive Minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond VA and is currently serving as a member of the UUA Board of Trustees. He was ordained to the Baptist Ministry in 2006 and was granted Ministerial Fellowship by the UUA in 2014. Rev. Sherman is married to Franka and they are proud parents to four daughters, a son and two Jack Russell Terriers; they are also doting grandparents to three girls and two boys.
March 22nd: “Wisdom Is More Beautiful than the Sun”
Where do we turn when life hurts and the world seems to be against us? We’ll explore the surprisingly timely advice found in an ancient text, The Consolation of Philosophy, written by a Roman politician who fell out of favor and lost everything but the resources of his own mind and spirit.
Rev. Laura Horton-Ludwig has served as minister of the Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists since 2017. Previously, she served with congregations in Wisconsin, Illinois, California and Northern Virginia. A graduate of our Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago, Rev. Laura is also a trained spiritual director. We welcome her to the Fellowship in her third pulpit swap with Rev. Andrew!
March 29th: “Long Haul People”
This month, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula has made a big decision. What wisdom may we find, in poetry, myth and history, to carry us through the work we have ahead of us and the commitment we have made to a brave future? What spiritual resources will we need to help us in our on-going efforts to offer the wider world our very special blessing?
