No Pain, No Gain?
Rev. Schuyler Vogel, Senior Minister

Today, we’ll explore the role of suffering on personal and spiritual growth. Do we need suffering to grow? Is that an obvious truth or a tired cliche? Is it a recipe for resiliency or a justification for toxicity? We’ll dive into these questions through the lens of sports, gender, yoga, and spiritual practice. We hope you can join us!

The Dignity of Names
Olas Carayannis

Names are gifts that express our individuality. The processing of naming a child, asserting a familial or cultural identity, or reclaiming our gender expression are all powerful and deeply personal choices of self-discovery—but these can also be fraught with anxiety and complicated social dynamics.  This week we will explore the power of names and we will question how we can better understand the inherent worth and dignity of each through each other’s names.  Olas Carayannis is a seminarian at Union Theological Seminary and the Director of Quality Assurance and Improvement at the Civilian Complaint Review Board.

Claiming Our Space
Person of Color Affinity Group

Join us for a special service led by our Person of Color Affinity Group! The POC Affinity Group formed last spring so that Fourth Universalist members and friends of color can gather for intentional community, support, and fellowship. Today, after working closely with our ministers and staff, they offer reflections around how people of color are claiming Fourth Universalist as their spiritual home. We hope to see you there!

Thanksgiving Sunday
Rev. Schuyler Vogel, Senior Minister

Join us for a special Thanksgiving service! We’ll celebrate this season of gratitude and harvest, and explore what it means to have enough and why it can feel so hard to be satisfied with what we have. After the service, we’ll also have a special congregational potluck! All are welcome.
