“Seeking Truth in the Suttas”
Rev. Andrew Moeller

As Unitarian Universalists, we are seekers of truth and meaning. Often we struggle to find ways through all the claims of what it true and right for others, but we get lost in understanding what is right and true for ourselves. For one possible answer, the service will look into the wisdom of the Buddha through the lens of the famous “Canki Sutta” in Buddhist Scripture.

“Imagining Easter’s Possibilities”
Rev. Andrew Moeller

For many UUs, Easter is an awkward holiday. Its meaning seems lost in its supernatural stories that defy our rational sensibilities. This Easter Sunday, our service will look at the Easter story through a contemporary UU lens that might be more relatable.

“A Summons Unto Humanity - The Legacy of John Haynes Homes”
Rev. Andrew Moeller

Later this Sunday, in the afternoon, we will be celebrating the installation of Rev.
Andrew Moeller as our settled minister. In celebration, Rev. Drew, Nick Childs,
and a special mystery guest will tell the dramatic story of the late Rev. John

~ Installation of Rev. Drew as our settled and called minister~

This is a special Unitarian and Universalist tradition where, through ritual, minister and congregation name, create and formalize their commitment to one another. This event will have a number of guests and regional ministers, who will celebrate and witness with this congregation this important event in the history of UUSB’s
life. Childcare will be provided. A reception put on by the Women’s Guild will follow the service.
