Our 1st HUUC digital-Egg Hunt

Every year one of our treasured events is the church Easter egg hunt. As this spring we will miss kids of all ages scrambling over the Harvard common as they hunt for eggs, we are planning our very first Harvard UU digital-Egg Hunt for young and old alike! This will be a fun way to participate in our beloved tradition at time when we might otherwise be missing a sense of community, collaboration, and spring spirit.

Here is how to participate:

Hide an egg, bunny, or Easter-themed item(s) somewhere in your home or private outdoor space. It can be as silly, elaborate, or simple as you like. Then, take a picture. The more hidden items/pictures people send, the better our hunt will be.

Send your pictures before noon on Saturday, April 11 to with captions like "Look for the egg" or "Find the blue bunny." Our Easter Hunt will then be posted on Easter Sunday, and church members can hunt through the photos from the safety of home—no Easter bonnet or basket required.

Created and led by Liv, as RE Committee member (Go, Liv!)

Upcoming Events

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!

Minister’s Minute

David Treadway, a member and a psychologist passed along to me some coping mechanism for this challenging time. We talked about them yesterday during the ministers chat and found them helpful. Here are the first 3, I'll send more next week.

  1. Laughter may not actually be the best medicine, but it helps.
  2. Taking Turns: In normal communication, couples share their feelings back and forth. However, in times of relational stress or external crisis like Covid, both members of the couple sharing their upset often time leads to emotional overload. It is really important for couples to learn how to take turns around expressing their feelings about this crisis. So that one person can be really attending to the other emotionally. In other words, taking turns by having two of you paying attention to one at a time.
  3. The pervasive relentlessness of the news on Covid can be overwhelming and yet we have a hard time putting down our phones. Designate times of the day to check the news and practice not turning in all day long. And particularly don't tune into the news in the evening before bed or first thing when you wake up.
