“An Infinitely Expanding Universe”

ALL ARE WELCOME! You BELONG at Beacon. Spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.

Buddhist scripture states, “… there are thousands of suns, thousands of moons, thousands of inhabited worlds of varying sorts.” Popular imagination and government funding of scientific studies are illuminating the idea that we are not the only intelligent life in the universe. If true, it would be exciting, frightening, and challenging within the living tradition of our faith.  Rev. Patrice Curtis, preaching, with Worship Associate Andy Hogg and music from Andrez Alcazar. 

Our Guest Minister Today:  Rev. Patrice Curtis is the Transformational Interim Ministries Director on the UUA Ministry and Faith Development team. Patrice collaborates with and supports interim ministers and religious professionals, in amplifying diversity, equity, and inclusion within congregations, and in disrupting unhealthy cultural patterns that make Beloved Community difficult to realize. Patrice is currently the Affiliate Minister with UUCP. Patrice interned at First Unitarian in Portland, OR, and has served the congregations of Clearwater, Florida; Washington, DC; and the Church of the Larger Fellowship.

Rev. Robin will be away on Study Leave and back in the pulpit on Sunday, September 4. In the meantime, August at Beacon will continue with a great line-up of worship services with social hour to follow:
