February Ministry Theme: Surrender

“Love isn't about what we did yesterday;
it's about what we do today and tomorrow and the day after.”

~ Grace Lee Boggs

February 4, 2018 - Living a Life of Integrity Our Guest Preacher, Rev. Marta I. Valentín currently ministers with the good people at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Medford, MA. She has served in congregations in MA, VA, and New Orleans, LA and has served the UUA in various capacities. On February 4th, she will lead us in asking: How do we maintain our integrity when we break our vows a thousand times, and we know that the breaking is inevitable? How is maintaining one’s integrity different or the same from being honest, and is being honest the same as being truthful? And what does any of this have to do with being whole?

February 11, 2018 - Surrendering to the Next As we move through life's stages, we must let go of what has been, in order to move fully into what is next. Affiliate Minister Rev. MaryHelen Gunn, Marvin Venay of UUUrban Ministry, and REC Laci Adams speak out of their experiences with FPB youth and CampUUsBoston young adults about mentoring, guiding, learning from and working with people in the next generations.

February 14, 2018 at 7 pm - Ash Wednesday Service This Unitarian Universalist service will honor our diverse theologies while respecting the importance of seasonal reflection. Ashes will be offered with an invitation to use them as a reminder of what is important in our lives. Rev. Rebecca Bryan is leading the service. Childcare will be available.

February 18, 2018 - Queer Faith Zr. Alex Kapitan is a trainer, speaker, consultant, editor, anti-oppression activist, and transgender and queer lifelong Unitarian Universalist. "Queer" is a gloriously complex term: both noun and verb, self-label and slur, community and political identity. In this service, Alex Kapitan, a queer lifelong UU, will share a personal understanding of what queer Unitarian Universalism can look like, and also what it might mean to queer the practice of this faith.

February 25, 2018 - Love the Hell out of this World Matt Meyer is a musician and community organizer who has led hundreds of services for UU congregations across the country. Matt will lead us in asking the question: When the culture around us doesn’t encourage us to our best selves, how do we model the kind of world we want to live in? He will reflect on the good and bad of middle school, the time he picked the very best costume for a high-stakes 5th grade costume party, and how we find the skills for beloved community.
