Religion Without Revelation

December 10 @ 10:30 am-11:30 am

Rev. Peter Connolly preaching

Most Western religious traditions are founded on the premise that the deepest meaning we can find in our lives depends on a revelation from a supernatural source.  A humanist perspective finds natural sources to be enough. Special vocal music will be provided by Nicola Wilbar singing The Chandelier.

Happy Times.  I got news a few weeks ago that Hope Rochefort, the daughter of my college room-mate Dave, and whom I’ve known all her life, gave

December Music Musings

UU Middleboro church musicians are still basking in the warm glo of a superb Autumn Concert (in Memory of Avis Clay), performed on November 19. It was a huge push and a huge success. Kudos to all the performers and support people who came together to make it happen! December promises to be its usual lively month, starting with two new offerings. Thursday, December 7, at 7:00 p.m., there will be a special gathering called “Finding Peace at the Holidays.” The music will be instrumental, gentle and meditative, a great way to ease into the busiest month of the year.

Religious Exploration in December

Our Annual Holiday Party for RE:  We will be celebrating the holidays on Sunday, December 10.  The children will be together from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. for gingerbread making, holiday crafting, food and fun.  There

The Black Lives Banner Is Back Up!

Opportunities to Volunteer!

There are volunteer openings available in December and January. We believe that participation in a worship service will help us build community and work together to meet our individual and Society goals. Please read more for the link to sign up online.
