“Solitude and Grief in the Time of Covid”
Hosted by Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, with Worship Associate Mark James preaching and music from Gabriel Hernandez and Rebecca Prizznick
The challenges inherent in living through this time of Covid-19 demand sufficient time for solitude; time without human obligation. Wendell Berry declares this is best found in wild places. But refuge can also be found in quieting of the mind, in meditation. In these quiet spaces inner voices become audible. There, both joy and grief may reveal themselves and inform our compassion. Let’s visit them, both together and in solitude.
- Follow along: Lyrics and Unison readings will be visible in the service recording.
- Connect: Join the Virtual Social hour on Sundays at 11 AM. Zoom links to the meeting are within our weekly E-Newsletter and the Beacon GoogleGroup.

WHAT IS UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM?
Imagine a religion:
- that places more importance on your values than on your religious beliefs or disbeliefs
- that welcomes your questions and affirms your search for truth and meaning
- that cares about social issues and wants to make a difference in the community
This is that religion.

WHAT IS BEACON?
Imagine a community:
- where you are accepted as you are, yet challenged and inspired to be better
- where children do not memorize the truths of others, but are nurtured to develop their own truths, wonder and awe
- where members are diverse people of many theologies, backgrounds, ages, abilities, ethnicities, and sexual orientations
This is that community.
Imagine a place:
- of celebration, worship, learning, and interacting with respect, mutual support, and love
This is that place.
The Vision of Beacon Unitarian Universalist Congregation is to build a center for liberal religion and action.
