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

Sun, Jan 23, 11:00am "Dropping Out", Joshua Leach
"You should always finish what you've started" is great life advice. Except for those times when it isn't. This is a sermon in praise of life's false starts and wrong turns, because sometimes they are exactly what's needed to find our true path. 

Sun, Jan 30, 11:00am "Imbolc-Midwinter", Rabbi Yaakov Reef
Midwinter, Imbolc, Oimelc, Tu biShvat, Groundhog Day. These are just a few of the names people around the world call this time of year. We are at the mid-way point between Winter and Spring; a time of great expectation and a time to honor the pregnancy of the Earth.
