|This Sunday, we will welcome the Rev. Mary Margaret Earl as our guest preacher at the 10:30 am worship service. The Rev. Mary Margaret Earl has served as Executive Director and Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry for two years. During that time, she has worked to strengthen bonds between UUs and the Roxbury neighborhood where the UUUM operates. She is on the leadership team of the Moral Revival Massachusetts, working with a coalition reclaiming what it means to be religious in the public square. Prior to her arrival at the UU Urban Ministry, she spent 10 years at McAuley Ministries, a faith-based nonprofit in Providence, RI that provides food, shelter and clothing to those who were homeless or at risk of becoming so. She is past president of the Board of the Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless and was recipient of the 2014 Heroes of Faith Award from the Rhode Island State Council of Churches for her interfaith work. She will be preaching on “Building Beloved Community: How Do We Weave Connections Among All God’s Children?"|
The Senior Choir will present music by Tomaso Albinoni and Bach/Gounod that will feature Inge Thorn Engler on violin and Russell Engler on cello. Childcare for little ones will be available beginning at 10:30 am; older children will begin in worship with their families before leaving for classes.
After worship, Rev. Earl will lead a discussion of Between the World and Me, the 2015 National Book Award for Nonfiction by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
