Summer Service

Daniel Payne

Harvard Unitarian Universalist Church is honored to help plan this year’s Joint Summer Service on August 6. The theme of this year’s service will be “Great Freedom, Great Responsibility,” focusing on inclusivity and the free, but respectful, exchange of varying – and sometimes, opposed – ideas. Daniel Payne, the Director of Religious Education at Harvard, and Ted Johnson, the Music Director at Harvard, will be the service leaders. Weather permitting, there will be refreshments outside following the service. The service will be held at the First Parish Church Stow/Acton, 353 Great Road Stow, Massachusetts 01775. Childcare will be provided.

Who we are

We are a liberal religious community of people of all ages who hold diverse theological beliefs. We come not only from Harvard, but also from many surrounding towns. We gather together \"in the spirit of love,\" to worship, to learn, and to care for one another. We come together both to be comforted and accepted for who we are, and to be challenged to transform and grow as moral and spiritual persons.

We believe in the value of personal experience and reason, and use both as we explore the wisdom of the world\'s religious traditions, seeking to find and make meaning for ourselves. We celebrate and honor the prophetic words and deeds of many of those who\'ve come before us, which call us to serve not only one another, but also those outside of our community. We long for a world that is fair and just and filled with compassion, and we work to make it so.

We welcome you! We\'d love to have you join us on our journey!
