Worship Services

November 1 - Restless Spirits  

For centuries humans have regarded the end of October and the beginning of November as a time when the human world and the spirit world grow closer. Even as cultures grow more secularized, this fascination with The Beyond persists. What need does this fascination fulfill?


November 8 - View from the Pew

Members of the congregation will share prepared thoughts and readings about the fall season and various issues that are on their minds.


November 15 - Guest Minister Rev. Nick Boke

Fear the Lord Your God

Most theistic religions insist that their worshippers should fear their god or gods. Why is this the case? More important, where does the fear that such religions tap into come from? And, finally, what should we Unitarian Universalists living in the early 21st Century do with our fears, whatever their source?


November 22: What Do You Bring to the Table? What Do You Take Away?

The nourishment of a holiday table isn't just in the food, delicious as that may be ! What each of us brings to the table in terms of expectations and attitude can shape the entire feast. This sermon will look at some of the other preparation that can enhance Thanksgiving dinner, and what it can provide.


November 29 First Time, Again

This intergenerational service falls on the first Sunday of Advent, so it's a great chance to begin to explain the celebration of Advent to the children - and to remind the adults, too!  Advent is a holiday from Unitarian Universalism's Christian roots and it can help us understand our history more fully, as well as offer an approach to celebration of the season. We'll look at the uses of repetition in celebration, considering how the "rules" limit us and how they  free us.









Sunday, November 22, 11:30 am

Join us after coffee hour as we pack fresh produce for the Hingham Food Pantry's Thanksgiving distribution.  This service project is a concrete, enjoyable way for parishioners of all ages to give back to the community.
