Stewards of a Safe Place

Although the church is closed through February, please join us online for the live Sunday Service using Zoom Worship Invitation.  You may also like to follow along using the Order of Service.  In “Stewards of a Safe Place,Andrew Davis explores the challenges and rewards of creating and maintaining a beloved community. Beloved Community sounds so comforting that our desire for comfort can actually keep us from creating and maintaining the beloved community we all desire. It is fitting, then, that the UUA Soul Matters team has asked us to think about what it means to be a beloved community while we are also beginning to think about stewardship. Our Seven Principles call on us to be both creators and stewards of the beloved community, which means, as Henri Nouwen tells us, that we must work to create and maintain “the place where the person you least want to live with always lives,” and that at times “you might be that person.”
