Sermons by Stephen Day
In honor of the Labor Day weekend, we’ll be exploring the history of the holiday and the history of the labor movement in the United States. Even more importantly, we’ll consider what workers’ rights and the unionization of the workforce means for us as individuals and as Unitarian Universalists.
Most world religions exist to provide an answer to the big question of life: what happens after we die. This morning we present a sermon by Rev. Wayne B. Arnason where we’ll consider one possible answer – reincarnation – and how a belief in a starting over can make an impact on how we interact with the world around us.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” With LGBTQ+ rights under attack in cities and states across the nation, it can be hard to see the arc of the LGBTQ+ universe. This morning we’ll take a brief look at the history of acceptance in our country and the wins that give hope for the future.
With the possible overturning of Roe vs. Wade in the coming weeks, the question of bodily autonomy is once again at the forefront of our national debate. We’ll be exploring the history of Roe vs. Wade and the bodily rights granted to us by the Constitution along with delving into the questions of who does my body belong to and what rights do I (and others) have over it from a moral, ethical, and legal perspective?
Our Unitarian Universalist 4th Principle calls for a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning”, but actually sitting down and contemplating our beliefs is not something many of us do on a regular basis. This morning we’ll be discussing the importance of theology (the study of religious truth, not just “God”) on our lives and on the future of humanity.
As we begin the process of coming together once again, we face a number of decisions that will define who we are as a church for many years to come.

Our UU fourth principle calls for a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Join us when some of our members share their personal spiritual beliefs.
