Upcoming Worship Services

Sunday, May 20 at 10:30AM  Making A Way Out of No Way

Rev. Carol Strecker
This African American expression speaks to overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds to make a way where there seems to be no way out, around or through – particularly when it comes to the roadblocks of systemic racism. Milford’s own Harriet Wilson was an African American woman particularly adept at making a way out of no way. Her story is an important one in acknowledging the brutal treatment of African Americans in New England as well as the power of human agency in creating and recreating ourselves.

Sunday, May 27 at 10:30AM   Blessing of the Animals

Rev. Carol Strecker
Join us in Barnum Hall where we’ll honor the interconnected web of life this morning with an inter-generational service dedicated to our furry and feathered friends. You are invited to bring your well-behaved pets on a leash or in a carrier. Please give them plenty of exercise before you come. If the experience of coming to UUCM will either traumatize your pet or the rest of us, please leave them at home. We will bless them long distance and give you a certificate and a ribbon of blessing to take home for them. Bring stuffed pets and pictures of beloved animal friends for our altar. We will do the best we can to separate the animals from people with allergies.

Sunday, June 3 at 10:30AM   Blessing and Being Blessed

Rev. Carol Strecker
Today we honor and bless our Senior Youth as they cross the bridge from all they’ve known to explore the unknown. We’ll also honor all those among us who bless this congregation with their gifts of service.

Sunday, June 10 at 10:30AM   Flower Ceremony (aka Flower Communion)

Rev. Carol Strecker
Together we’ll learn more about this historic Unitarian ritual (including it’s name) as we celebrate the blessings of unity in diversity. Please bring a flower (or two) from your garden to share with members of our Beloved Community. The celebration will continue with a potluck lunch on the Shelley garden (weather permitting).

Sundays, June 17 – Sept. 2, 9:30-10:30am   Summer Services

Note earlier time.  Summer Services are smaller in scale and less formal than our regular services. They provide a way to keep our connections alive through the summer. More aptly called “significant Sunday sharing,” these sessions provide a time to share our joys, concerns, thoughts, and inspirations in a meaningful way. We sit in a circle in the Fireside Room and the week’s leader supplies a word, phrase, or theme, which leads to a group discussion that can evolve in any direction. There is a wonderful feeling of nurturing our spirits by sharing our thoughts and experiences. If you have questions or would like to facilitate a circle, please contact Cathy at cathy.goldwater@gmail.com.
