Sunday Morning Worship ~Nov 29 10:30 am

Sermon: “What Would It Mean to be Prepared?”
Our Intern in the Pulpit: Julia Jones
I admit it, I used to roll my eyes at the notion of prepping - folks getting ready for really hard times by storing huge amounts of supplies and survival gear. After the great toilet paper scare of earlier this year, that level of skepticism seems a little misplaced. In this season of Advent, however, I feel called to ask myself, and all of you as well, what is it we are preparing for. How would we spend this winter if we were preparing for a world we can really believe in?

Great music right here in Beverly!!!
Bassist and composer Larry Gray demonstrates an impressive versatility and an uncommon musical curiosity. Throughout the years he has worked with such jazz greats as George Coleman, Lee Konitz, Bobby Hutcherson, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Fortune, Ira Sullivan, Junior Mance, David "Fathead" Newman, Charles McPherson, Branford Marsalis, Benny Golson, Jackie McLean, Sonny Stitt, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Al Cohn, Eddie Harris and Les McCann.
In addition, he has collaborated with guitarists Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass, and Tal Farlow, as well as the drummers Ed Thigpen and Jack DeJohnette, and trumpeters Donald Byrd and Harry "Sweets" Edison, among others.
John Moulder is a guitarist and composer whose music has evolved from an assimilation of various musical traditions. His most recent release entitled Decade: Memoirs (Origin 2018) features Gwilym Simcock, Tim Garland, Steve Rodby, Paul Wertico and Ernie Adams and features 7 new compositions penned by Moulder that were inspired by meaningful events and people in Moulders life.

Thank You, Good Neighbors & Friends!

December is a month filled with requests for donations from organizations that rely on the generosity of the larger community. Beverly Unitarian Church does the same but we offer some wonderful things in exchange.

If you purchased your Christmas tree from the church's annual sale, THANK YOU! You were one of 100 families who took home a beautiful, perfectly straight tree in exchange for your support of a local church. Shop earlier next year if you missed out on a castle tree because we only offer 100 trees each year and sales only happen over four days for two weekends.

If you enjoyed one of the 300 breakfasts served on December 7th, Santa loved eating with you AND the Women of the Castle want to say, "THANK YOU!" Thanks to your participation and generosity, the Women of the Castle are able to provide financial support to the church and to local, charitable organizations.

Happy New Year 2020 and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Help Support Sueños sin Fronteras

Beverly Unitarian is partnering with Sueños sin Fronteras to provide much-needed clothes and hygiene items to the many asylum seekers and refugees on or near U.S. borders. Sueños sin Fronteras in English means Dreams Without Borders. In the big blue box in the foyer put used clothes or undergarments, socks, toiletries (new please). We will collect these items until the end of the year. Beverly Therapists, a local consortium of counselors and therapists, are also sponsoring this initiative....GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR!

Annual Christmas Tree Sale

The holidays filled with our personal rituals are all part of the joy in our lives. Once again, we’ve ordered 100 beautiful Fraser Fir trees, small to large. This is a “feel-good” fundraiser for both the church and for the larger community. We expect to sell out in two weekends and only four days of sales: December 7, 8, 14 and 15 from 10:30 to 4:30 (with an earlier start on Breakfast with Santa day, December 7th). Be sure to not wait too long; when they're gone they're gone!
Please share this post.
