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., May 15 11am "The Mountaintop", Joshua Leach
Life is full of those moments when we think a difficult struggle is almost over, only to realize that it has just begun. This sermon is about recognizing the long road to victory, while celebrating the moments of pause and relief we get along the way. 

Sun., May 22 11am "Fragments of Holiness", Rev. Eugene "Woody" Widrick
Religion is usually presented to us in large terms, holy books, lists of beliefs and moral codes, but in our day-to-day living it is the bits and fragments that help us along:  as in John Bunyan "You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you" or Meister Eckhart "If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."

May 26 Social Justice Committee Meeting

Sun., May 29 11am "Patriotism and The Seven Principles" Teresa English
As we teeter closer to another world war, let’s look at how Unitarian Universalists adhere to our principles (especially the 1st and 7th) while supporting our military and opposing tyranny.
