April Sermon Topics

During the month of April, we hope you’ll join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 or 11:15 as we explore expressions of justice.


April 1, 2012                Let My People Go!

The Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate Kristina Spaude – A message of liberation is at the heart of the scriptures and stories of Passover.  Freedom is a requirement for the realization of justice.  How are we still struggling for freedom in our own time?  How can the old story help illuminate the struggles that greet our hands and feet today?


April 8, 2012                In His Eyes

The Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer, Director of Religious Education Karen Lapidus and Worship Associate Max Grubb – Jesus was radically egalitarian.  In his eyes all people were equal.  Equality is a hallmark of justice.  We will celebrate human equality and dignity in our special Easter services this morning.  Our earlier service will be crafted with adults in mind, our later service will be created for children (first graders and up) and adults together.  The choir will sing, we will celebrate and our annual egg hunt will be held immediately following our second service.

Led by Commissioned Lay Leader, Deb Chaney from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Canton and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen


 April 22, 2012              The Planet our Children Will Inherit

The Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate MaryLou Holly – Justice needs us to take a long view.  Our children and our children’s children and their children and theirs will be the inheritors of this planet.  What must we do, who must we be to be good stewards of the earth?  Today is Earth Day.  Come hear stories, come sing praises, come pledge your hearts again to this planet we share.


April 29, 2012              Grateful for the Changemakers

The Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer and Worship Associate Bonnie Harper – So often our conversations about the demands of justice can become difficult or even depressing.  To be grounded in the quest for justice as a religious person is to be grounded in a vision that sustains hope.  This morning we will lift up stories of people creating change, people who are helping us find a way and the will to travel the way we have found.  Today we lift up gratitude for people who help us become the change we want to see.
