Wherever you are on life's journey. You are welcome here.

We are Unitarian Universalists, or UU's for short. We are people of all ages and walks of life who live in Billerica and nearby towns. We come from a variety of religious backgrounds - mainly Christian and Jewish. We have a wide range of religious beliefs. Some of us are newcomers, while some are long time U.U.'s. We cherish the universal truths taught by the great teachers in every time and tradition. We welcome diversity of religious opinion, yet we seek a strengthened spirituality for ourselves. We want the opportunity to consider religious questions with others who are not always certain they have all the answers.

Wayside Pulpit All Welcome

Sep 12   “We Are All W.E.I.R.D.”, Rev. Nannene Gowdy
Because of COVID, we will not be able to meet in person, so ingathering seems a little artificial. But it is the start of a new church year, a new school year, and a hopeful look at 2022. How do we, in Western civilization, look at the world differently from other societies?

Sep 19   “Mabon: A Time of Balance”, Rev. Linda Goodman
The wheel of the year has turned to a point of balance at the autumnal equinox. The harvest is in, so we pause and reflect on the time of summer activity and its fruits. Looking back, what experiences have we harvested? Looking forward, what do we wish to learn and cultivate in the coming quiet of winter? The dance goes on.
 
Sep 26   “Living in Paradox”, Rev. Eugene “Woody” Widrick
Lewis Carroll has the White Queen in Alice in Wonderland tell Alice that she believes as many as six impossible things before breakfast.  One of the professors at Andover Newton Theological School told us we had to learn to live in Paradox, believe two things. For instance, he cited the Biblical story of Creation in Genesis and The Big Bang theory.  Both are sufficient to explain what is.  People believe a lot of "impossible" things these days which are harmful [I have had the two shots of covid vaccine therefor some people thing I have two chips in my arm], how about believing some impossible things that are helpful and hopeful?
