Make America Cake Again

We welcome back Rev. Jennifer Pader as guest speaker as we continue this year’s theme on the exploration of the second UU Principle. We’ll look at the fascinating history of some utopian communities in New England (including a famous Unitarian attempt at paradise on earth). What did these groups have in common with MMUUF as “beloved community”? Where did they fail and where did they triumph? Come walk into the space of ritual and celebration, idealism and interconnectedness this Thanksgiving season!

Rev. Pader, M.Div., STM, LMSW was the Affiliate Minister for Pastoral Care of the Fourth Universalist Society in the City of New York. Jennifer has led several services for MMUUF over the last couple of years.

It’s been a banner year for fear. Recently, there’s been an abundance of fear-driven responses to world, national and local events. In this UU Sunday Service, we see that fear leads to other emotional responses, and blocks us from engaging in rational discourse and decision making. Understanding fear can be the first step in keeping it … Continued
