Sunday, May 1, 10:45 a.m.

“Who’s Your Daddy?"

In the pulpit: Rev. Darrell Berger
Music: Dr. Carolyn Clark and Choir

Rev. Berger explores why May 1st should be a major holiday for Unitarian Universalists. Beltane is an old pagan celebration occuring on May 1 that, to say the least, does not support the patriarchy.


Sunday, May 8, 10:45 a.m.

“Compssion and the Society of Friends"

In the pulpit: Peter Laughter, Member of Brooklyn Friends
Music: Dr. Carolyn Clark and Choir

In our series on Compassion in the Great Religions, we will learn how the Quakers express compassion in their religious tradition. Guest speaker, Peter Laughter of the Brooklyn Friends Meeting, and founder of NYC Chapter of Conscious Capitalism, will be joined by elders Naceo Giles and Inga Inga Schwarzkopf in telling us how Radical Empathy (also known as Compassion!) is understood and expressed in the Friends' tradition of belief and practice.


Sunday, May 15, 10:45 a.m.

“Seeking Justice: My Journey to Marriage Equality"

In the pulpit: Marjorie Ramos
Music: Dr. Carolyn Clark and Choir

Marjorie Ramos will share the personal story of her advocacy for Marriage Equality in context of the First and Second UU Principles; a journey that took her and her wife, Margaret, from marriage by a "gay-friendly" judge in Greenwich, CT to the Supreme Court decision in June 2015 that the Constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriage. Much of her activism occurred while she was a member of the UCSI, and was supported by this congregation.


Sunday, May 22, 10:45 a.m.

“Black Lives Matter"

In the pulpit: Rev. Darrell Berger
Music: Dr. Carolyn Clark and Choir

Rev. Berger will address the ongoing support within our congregation for the Black Lives Matter Movement, which will be publically evident by a banner, which the congregation approved, and which will be displayed in a prominent place outside the entrance to our church.
