In the 2018 election, Floridians voted to restore voting rights to ex-felons who completed their sentences. Since then, the state legislature has added new requirements to disenfranchise as many as 800K of these voters. We Got The Vote is an advocacy organization working to register ex-felons and help them pay back outstanding debts. Find out more at www.wegotthevote.org

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!

Seeking What Unites Us

Psychologist once thought resilience was a fixed trait some of us had and some us didn’t. Research now shows that we are all resilient most of the time and it’s a capacity we can strengthen. Resilience is like the art of Kintsugi (golden joining) where our broken places are mended with gold lacquer. In the spirit of Black History Month, this service explores the alchemy of compassion and dignity as the gold that heals us a person and as a people. As Harvard Professor Donna Hick’s writes “if indignity tears us apart, dignity can put us together again."
