Summer Service

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.

Holding On and Letting Go

The job of an interim minister, Mark says, is to fall in love with the congregation — and then, when it is time to say goodbye, say goodbye. Yet there will be things to hold on to as well as things to let go of. This will be Mark’s final sermon and farewell at our church.

Spiritual Friendship

Writer David Whyte says that “the ultimate touchstone of friendship is witness, the privilege of being seen by someone and the equal privilege of seeing the essence of another. To walk and believe in someone on a journey impossible to accomplish alone.” Spiritual friendship is a long held expression in our faith. Come and renew yourself in the possibilities and the power of spiritual friendship.
