“When day comes, we step out of the shade of flame and unafraid.
The new dawn balloons as we free it.
For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.”
From The Hill We Climb, by Amada Gorman recited at the Inauguration of President Biden.

Guest at Your Table
With our lives currently being held hostage by the corona virus, our GAYT effort will take a breather and start up again in the fall. In the meantime if you are able to send in a check to support the UUSC’s efforts around the globe it will be greatly appreciated. All donations will still be matched and donations of $125 or more will be quadrupled.
For more information please see our post "Guest At Your Table (GAYT) Takes a Breather"
“The story of the Negro in America is the story of America. It is not a pretty story.” The quote stems from Raoul Peck’s 2016 film “I Am Not Your Negro” based on the words of James Baldwin. Disturbed by the fact that history books were omitting the contributions and experiences of Black Americans, the honorary month of Black History was first pitched by Carter G. Woodson who established Negro History Week in 1926. Negro History Week expanded to a month in 1976.
In truth, honoring black history is not something to be boxed in by any length of time, and I am making it a practice of mine to integrate black history and present day history in the making into every Sunday service, and everyday life. An anti-racist practice necessary if we are to achieve equity for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in this country.
I invite you into a practice of this quality of engagement with an anti-racism buddy with whom you will explore prompts and resources over 8 sessions. This is a curriculum I have honed as a facilitator of Show Up For Racial Justice Boston (SURJ) base groups with a focus on changing the narrative of white supremacy personally and culturally with the end goal of movement building. In place of SURJ as the organization with which to engage we will be connecting with UUMASS Action's MetroNorth cross congregational working group that is just forming. This initiative is to support our board's goal of interrupting practices of white supremacy through learning and engagement.

Yours in faith,
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!
