While essential to pay attention to blessings which lift our hearts and remind us of the good, it is also necessary to make space for loss and pain. When buried, these can inhibit our ability to love and share. This service will explore the relationship between gratitude and grief and the opportunities for transformation which come from opening to the whole of life.

Guest Speaker Bio – The Rev Pamela Rumancik is poet, native plant enthusiast and long-time tree-hugger.  Her spiritual roots reach back to Catholicism, and she is an initiate into the Ruhaniat Sufi tradition. These liturgical origins inform her love of the arts as a vehicle for experiencing the holy otherness of life. Pam’s deepest commitments are to remembering the divine in each being and finding ways to open conversation with folks who see the world differently. Originally from Lorain, Ohio, she is the mother of three grown children and the wife of Rev Karen Mooney. Pam and Karen live in Bull Valley, Il, share their home with two golden doodles and spend a lot of time working in their garden.

Second Sunday offering for immigrant assistance.  Make checks payable to BUC.  Please use check MEMO to direct your contribution.

As we enter African American History Month, Rev. Allen will discuss some of our own legacy with race and racism, and ask where we have gotten over the years. Our focus on racial justice in our neighborhood has been pushed to the side by our recent attention to immigrant peoples and needs (also an important and worthy cause), but racial inequity should still demand our attention.

 

Open Discussion of Proposed Changes to UUA By-Laws, Article II

After Church TODAY (will be repeated if there is demand).  The proposed changes alter the language describing our UU religious tradition, moving from the current Principles and Sources to a new statement framed by Values and Inspirations. Much is similar, much is changed. The proposal will be voted up or down at the UUA General Assembly in June 2024. The topic has been described several times from our pulpit, but this session is an opportunity to open up discussion, deal with personal reaction, and chew on the ideas in play.

The title of today's message, "To Believe in this Living Is Just a Hard Way to Go," is a line from Angel from Montgomery, a song written by John Prine and sung by Bonnie Raitt. What does it take to believe in this living, and what makes it a hard way to go?

Interestingly, most of us seem rather philosophical about the prospect that our own lives will end, but quite emotional about the potential death of those dearest to us. How do we envision death?
How do we come to terms with its inevitability? In addition to the feeling-thinking aspects of dying, Rev. Allen will also touch on some of the practical things we should do to prepare for our own dying.

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.

For better or for worse, uncertainty is our lifelong companion. We can never know what will happen to us next. This not knowing can be deeply uncomfortable. Must we travel together this way throughout life? Or can we make friends with our companion and embrace the improvisational adventure of our uncertain path.
