The BUC choir will join us with offerings of traditional sacred Easter music. Rev. Allen will encourage us to appreciate the passion and devotion expressed through these moving works. Then he will present a less traditional take on ways we might interpret the ideas of resurrection and salvation that this day celebrates. 

Childcare and religious education are available during services.
The Beverly Unitarian Church welcomes people of every religious background, race, ethnicity, age, gender, and sexual and affectional orientation.

Stewardship Sunday: An appeal to choose us!                                             Rev. Allen Harden

I will discuss what we are as a church community and what we expect to be and to do as a church. We are asking you to pledge to support our programs, and I remind you that this is something we do because it is what we want. This church practices personal growth and formation and promotes social action and transformation.
Helping us remain vital requires the effort and the financial support of all of us.

We'll be meeting in person AND streaming live on Zoom.

We're gearing up for the church stewardship campaign, with this year's theme being "Thrive." The campaign kick-off will be on Sunday, April 7th. Please join us for a meal after the service, and even a harmonica tune or two from Jeff Pinzino. As you may know, we've lost several pledging members in the past few months. If you are able to increase your pledge this year, it would help us to keep pace for the coming year. If you've never thought of yourself as one of the "stalwarts" in the congregation, now's your chance to become one. We're grateful for whatever you can give. Click this link to make your pledge.

Sorry I'm Late, I didn't Want to Come (Jessica Pan) An introvert spends a year trying to live like an extrovert with hilarious results and advice for reading along the way. -The Publisher

 Upcoming selections:

May 13 - Vera Wong's Advice for Murderers (Jess Q Sutanto) Following the success of Dial A for Aunties, Sutanto is back with another charmer, this time following the exploits of orthopedic-sneaker-wearing Vera Wong ZhuZhu, who finds a dead body in her Chinatown tea shop. When the police investigation isn't thorough enough for her liking, she concocts a plan to find the murderer, aided by a locked flash drive she found on the body and stashed away for safekeeping. Sutanto excels at skewering with affection, and an earnest hilarity shines through in this entertaining who-dun-it. -The Washington Post

June 10 - Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland (Patrick Radden Keefe) From the author of Empire of Pain--a stunning, intricate narrative about a notorious killing in Northern Ireland and its devastating repercussions.

In good reading,

-Paula

April 14 – From Fish Love to True Love        Rev. Marcia Curtis

Fish love is the kind of love where you say "I love fish" -- and then you eat them.  It's a self-centered love.  True love is a mutual love, where you put the partner's needs and wants equal to your own. How do you get from one to the other?

Second Sunday offering for migrant support.  Please use check memo line.

We'll be meeting in person AND streaming live on Zoom.

Another Free Lunch!
Sunday, April 14 right after the service, there will be a Brainstorming Lunch Meeting about the rebirth of a BUC Property Committee. We've got a dozen great minds attending already, but I don't want to leave anyone out who has both ideas and the will to help in large or small ways to keep our Castle buildings and grounds in shape. Here's an example: Ken Small has volunteered to be Boiler Man and Gretchen Bernard has volunteered to be his apprentice. This does not mean Ken knows how to fix the boiler, but he will understand its controls and learn when and who to call to do the job if needed.
RSVP to Adair if you would like to join us so I can bring enough food! 949-232-2143 mobile or smallab528@gmail.com

A Reconsideration of White Supremacy Culture                             Rev. Allen Harden

I believe that we live in a “White Supremacy Culture”, and that I, and most of us, benefit from the structural elements of racism that are embedded in American life. I also know that some of you would question this assertion. Let me describe what I see, and then we can examine whether our differences involve words or bigger ideas. Does the nature of racism in our community and our nation influence how we might approach racial differences in opportunity?

Fourth Sunday offering for migrant support.  Please use check memo line.
