“Changing the Recipe: The Unexpected
Adventure of Rosemary Matson”
Worship Arts with the
Reverend Jennifer Innis
As we begin with the theme of Justice
from James Luther Adams’ Five Smooth
Stones, Worship Arts and Rev. Jennifer
offer the contemporary biography of the
late Rosemary Matson. Her death in early
October 2014 closes a powerful chapter in
20th century activism. Her efforts include
migrant ministry, women’s spirituality, and
gender equality while being grounded in
Unitarian Universalism. Caesar Chavez
appears, too!

“Prophets in Our Own Country”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
The just and loving community is essential
to an open and inclusive faith if the church
is to have any standing in our society. But
how we do we listen when someone “speaks
the truth in love”? What truths might need
to be heard today?
A Congregational Lunch and the Fall
Congregational Meeting follow the service.
The lunch is hosted by the Coming of
Age class as a fundraiser for their Boston
heritage trip.

“Ordinary Love”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
Our news and conversations are fi lled
with stories of heroic acts of dedication
and service. Those critical and demanding
events inspire us and give us pause in our
every day lives. And then life goes on. What
about the quieter examples? Join us for a
take on radical hospitality that might be
more sustainable and transforming than

November 30
“Religion is Not an Option”
The Reverend Mark Walz
If nothing is more important than bringing
soul to everything we do, can there be
soul without a vivid sense of the sacred.
The theologian Thomas Moore claims we
must surrender to religion. That religion is
our most creative and concrete response
to the mysteries of our lives. Can this be a
Unitarian-Universalist position?
