♦♦♦ Gems of The Week ♦♦♦
Race does not biologically exist, yet race influences our experiences and shapes our lives. Visit this is great website about learning to become anti racist from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture.
Prior Weeks' GEMs:
In order to dismantle anti-Blackness in our communities, 28 Days of Black History each evening posts exhibits that highlight a moment in Black history, exemplified by the art, literature or artifact. There are discussion questions to guide conversations with friends, family, and colleagues. Follow this link to take you to the episode about Billie Holiday. Then, roam around the site for lots of great learning.
William Barber, and the Question of Faith and Politics – a New Yorker podcast with David Remnick, the pastor who spoke at the inaugural prayer service, wants politics guided by Christian morality. And conservatives, Barber thinks, are deeply confused about Christ’s teachings. You can listen to it here.
“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.
Loaves & Fishes Donations
With Loaves and Fishes still not accepting food donations, we have figured out a way to donate again. L and F has a Neighborhood Food Project we can join. Each family/person that is interested gets a green cloth Food Project bag. The goal is to add one item each time you go to the grocery store. Then your bag will be collected every 2 months and delivered with the other bags to L and F. You would have the option to drop the bag off at the Silk’s house or have it picked up by the Silks and receive a new green bag. (When we return to church for live services, you can drop your bag off at the church. This project may also help to keep donations going in the summer when church is not meeting.) If you are interested or have questions, please send an email to Maddy SilkThanks!

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"
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!
