October 1st
“Sticking to it”
Speaker: Rev. Schuyler Vogel, Senior Minister

We live in a time where we expect instant responses to emails and know that the answers to our questions are never more than a google search away. It can be difficult to accept that sometimes getting  what we want can take a long time and lots of effort. Today we’ll talk about the value of perseverance, why it’s so hard, and how we can cultivate it in our lives.

October 8th
“Who Can Be Saved?”
Speaker: Rev. Mark Cutolo

Thanks to the influence of the evangelical movement, popular American religious thought is preoccupied with whether or not people’s souls are saved. Though salvation isn’t a prominent topic among religious liberals today, our Universalist and Unitarian forbears had clear and competing theories on how we are saved. In today’s service we’ll learn more about that heritage, and reflect together about what saves us.

October 15th
“”Our Moral Leadership”
Speaker: Rev. Schuyler Vogel, Senior Minister

Today we celebrate UN Sunday, an annual service here at Fourth Universalist when we explore an issue that impacts the whole world. This year, we’ll be talking about American moral leadership, the role of patriotism, and how our national identity impacts others around the globe.

October 22nd
“Of Fears and Fairy Tales”
Speaker: Rev. Schuyler Vogel, Senior Minister

It’s almost Halloween, the time of ghouls and ghosts, frights and fears. Yet, compared to other holidays, Halloween is often perceived as pithy, childish and lacking depth. For this holiday service, we’ll dive into the meaning behind this overlooked holiday and how it helps shape our moral imaginations.

October 29th
“Remembrance Sunday”
Speakers: Rev. Schuyler Vogel, Senior Minister, and the Worship Arts Committee

Join us this week as we honor, mourn, and celebrate those we have lost, either this year or years ago. We know that losing those we love is a natural part of life, as is our own eventual passing, and together we will wrestle with how to make sense of the strong emotions that these realities bring up.
