 WELCOME


Welcome to the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence.  We are a congregation with a tradition of liberal faith and committed social action, and a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.  We begin our worship on Sunday mornings with a welcome to everyone: newcomers and longtime members, young and old and in-between, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, queer and straight.  When you visit us we will also welcome you with smiles, and with a communal worship service that we hope will inspire you, touch your heart, and make you want to stay and learn more about us.

We are a congregation that affirms and welcomes people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations.  We strive to be a caring community where children and adults can safely learn and grow in mind, spirit and desire to serve.  We come from many different faith traditions, and follow different paths.  What binds us together is our respect for each other, our willingness to listen, our commitment to the principles of Unitarian Universalism, and the promises we make to create a community together.  We worship, we teach our children and each other, we serve the hungry, we sponsor social justice programs and events.  And we have fun!

Our website contains information about our programs and ministries, and links to places to learn more about Unitarian Universalism.  We hope you enjoy exploring it.  The best way to learn about us is to visit us on Sunday morning.  We hope to see you soon.

 

Reverend Janet C. Bush, Minister

 Wendell Berry’s Questionnaire 
Rev Alison Wholer
 
Wendell Berry's poetry has always inspired us in many aspects of our lives and work. For this particular service we’ll concentrate on his passionate work for the Earth and the ecological choices that lie ahead for us. His poem, "Questionnaire" is powerful and directs itself to both our minds and our hearts. We will also celebrate divestment from fossil-fuel investments, as a statement and as an incentive for the oil and gas industries (and all of us) to quickly move on to alternative sources of energy.
