Rev. Allen Harden
Sermon: "Truth and Race History"
In anticipation of MLK Day on Monday, I will try to address the information wars that now surround racial history in the United States, and how they have become
fully enmeshed in American politics and opinion formation. Truth and ideology vie for control of how we write our history, and the narratives we allow to be created
have far-reaching impacts.

Preserving Memories: History of BUC

Beverly resident Errol Magidson, a member of Beverly Unitarian Church and Men of the Castle, will again give his multimedia presentation of Preserving Memories: The History of Beverly Unitarian Church on Wednesday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m., in the Castle. This encore presentation will honor the founders of BUC and commemorate the 50th anniversary of the children’s annex. At this presentation will be Helen Malevitis, who was the director of the nonsectarian Castle preschool for 30 years, and Jack Simmerling, nationally-known local artist and historian.

The photo to the right is of a famous Beverly resident whose connection with the Castle will be revealed at the upcoming presentation. He is one of several famous people associated with the church that includes Clarence Darrow and Preston Bradley .

Waste High with Electronics and Chemicals

The March 6th Household Hazardous Waste Collection service was a rousing success. At least 125 cars dropped off paint, chemicals, batteries, TVs, appliances and electronics. We filled up a 10 foot long U-Haul, a pick up truck and ten palletized boxes. Many, many thanks go out to the BUC people who helped out:  Candace & Christian, Josh, Betsy, Beth, Lloyd, Sam & Susan, Bethany, Adrian, Jean, Char, Allan, Lyle and Fran.  

Mucho Gracias to Beverly Bank & Trust and Alderman Ginger Rugai, whose financial support made this event a lot more gratifying. The Green Sanctuary Group is using the funds collected from donations for dropping off waste to finance TreeKeeper scholarships, worship service speakers, the electric charging station, educational forums and a trip to GA this June.  We hope to involve more congregations in the future so that more residents are able to take advantage of this service.
