Reproductive Justice: What It Is, Why It Is So Important Right Now, and How You Can Be Involved?

Rev. Anthony Makar

Decisions about children, families, and sexuality are some of life’s most profound. Our Unitarian Universalist faith holds central the inherent worth and dignity of all people, which includes a belief in the sacredness of all bodies, and the importance of self-determination and human agency. As part of a liberatory Reproductive Justice movement, we affirm our commitment to building a world in which all people are able to make choices about their bodies, their health, and their families within safe, thriving communities.

Everybody Knows Your Name: The Unexpected Role of Shame in Liberal Religion

Preacher: Rev. Dr. Andy Burnette

Shame has been demonstrated to be an unreliable motivator. It sends our true selves into hiding. What role does shame play in liberal religions like ours, and how can we shift from shame to curiosity and love?

The Spirituality of Service

 Rev. Anthony Makar

Albert Schweitzer once said, “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know. The only ones among you who will be truly happy will be those who have sought and found how to serve.” This includes service to West Shore! Let’s take a closer look.

How to Be More Non-Judgmental

Rev. Anthony Makar

At our last service auction, West Shore member Anne Osborne purchased a sermon topic. She says, “I would like the sermon to be about ‘How can I be non-judgmental?’ – or at least less judgmental! – which seems to lead to the topic of ‘compassion,’ and understanding that people act as they do because of their prior life experiences – I am not better than anyone else, I have just had different experiences. How does this sound to you?” It sounds great! Come and find out more about this key spiritual issue.

On Cultural Intelligence

Rev. Anthony Makar

“Hold out your hands,” asks Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants. As a Native American, a biologist, and a skilled storyteller, Dr. Kimmerer weaves together three languages as she tells deep truths about our world. But can her readers (you and me!) receive what she has to share? “Will you hold the end of the bundle while I braid?” It will depend on our level of cultural intelligence. Please join Rev. Makar for this first installment of our year-long sermon series based on Dr. Kimmerer’s best-selling, award-winning book.

How to Talk About Death and Dying

Rev. Anthony Makar

Death is inevitable and yet it is almost universally avoided as a topic of discussion. If it is discussed, the conversation is often awkward and difficult. Let’s take a closer look and explore some insights that can help when discussing death with children and people of all ages.
