    Is Forgiveness Possible?

    Rev. Laura Shennum

What can we as, Unitarian Universalists, learn from this yearly ritual? Where does forgiveness fit in our principles?

    10:30am Service: With Reverence & Joy
    Rev. Laura Shennum
    Celebrant: Christina Davitt
    Sacred space is an intentional setting of tone, aesthetics, and worship. It is a space where we allow the spirit to move us with reverence and joy. What happens when one person’s reverence clashes with another person’s joy in the space? Do both have a place and can they be honored?

    Rev. Laura Shennum

    How powerful is your “yes?” When you say “yes,” do you actually mean it and are you enthusiastic about it? Let’s enter into a discussion of how to make our “yes” powerful and it actually have a deeper meaning in our lives.
