March 5

“The Problem with Superman” | Rev. Julia Hamilton

Do you know the problem with Superman? He is just to invulnerable! There is not much at stake if someone is bulletproof, fireproof, strong enough to stop a meteor, and possibly immortal, too. What if we judged a hero not by the superpowers they have, but by the risks they take? This Sunday we we’ll be kicking off the monthly theme of “Risk.”

Music TBA

March 12

“Taking the Risk of Leadership” | Rev. Caitlin Cotter

What happens when we say “yes!” to getting involved and helping make something happen? Join Rev. Caitlin for a service exploring the magic that can happen when we take the risk of leadership.

“Sanctuary” | Rev. Julia Hamilton

Have you ever taken a risk to protect someone else from harm? What does it mean to put ourselves, our institutions, or our freedom at risk for others? What does “Sanctuary” mean in these times, and how are we at the Unitarian Society called to respond?

Feed your body and spirit at a Brunch Break during Middle Hour, and support the work of our high school youth!

“The Legacy of the Heretic” | Rev. Julia Hamilton

“I will burn, but this is a mere incident. We shall continue our discussion in eternity.” Michael Servetus was condemned by both Protestants and Catholics alike during the Reformation, and was burned at the stake in 1553, atop a pile of his own books. What does it mean to risk your life for your convictions? What can this early Unitarian martyr teach us today?

USSB Women’s Chorale and Chancel Choir will sing
