A meditation on what merits our trust, and on what it means to be trustworthy.

March 10
All Shall Be Well
The Reverend Erica Richmond
Reverend Erica is thrilled to be returning to USNF! We will be exploring the wisdom of Julian of Norwich, a Medieval Christian mystic who famously reassured us of everlasting love and what it means to trust that we are held in that goodness. She is often described as a proto-Universalist.  Come learn more about her and how we can all embody this idea of acceptance and connection!

March 17
In Dark Times the Eye Begins to See
The Reverend Stephen Shick
For many of us darkness has fallen into our souls.  We lament with Langston Hughes: “O, let America be America again. The land that never has been yet. And yet must be.”  Ours is an ancient choice – what do we do in the darkness?  Together, through stories, poetry and conversation we will explore what spiritual practices can help us thrive in dark times like these.  The sermon title is from a poem by Theodore Roethke. 

March 24
Connections
The USNF Youth Group
Our youth will share their creativity, enthusiasm and wisdom, helping us explore the many meanings and expressions of connection.

Cancellation of Sunday Services
 In the event that Sunday services need to be cancelled, an announcement will be sent via email and will be posted on the Society's website.  In addition, the office phone message will be updated (by 8:00 AM Sunday morning) and television stations WWLP (Channel 22) and WGGB (Channel 40) will be notified.  It is recommended that you check at least 2 of these sources (e.g., you will not get the recorded phone message if the building is without power).  The decision to cancel services will be made no later than 7:30 AM on the Sunday in question.
