Upcoming Service

February 14

9:30 and 11:15 AM

St. Valentine's Love And Our Own

Rev. Clare Petersberger

This morning we explore the various understandings of love revealed in the legends around St. Valentine. St. Valentine never promoted the exchange of greeting cards, flowers, and chocolates. He modeled the exchange of something more. In the legends, he exemplifies how the commitment to love uplifts, unites, heals, wounds, and transforms. How do his varied understandings of love reflect your own?

Community Events


January 5 and 19
February 2 and 16
beginning at 7:30 PM

Facilitated by Rev. Clare, Marti Mackenzie, and Sheila Malenski (Social Action Chair)

TUUC's spiritual theme for January is justice. Often, when we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday, we remember the work for racial justice during the Civil Rights Movement by our congregation's Founders.

Some of us may feel like Anna Deavere Smith, who remembers hearing her father talk about the civil rights era and feeling she'd missed everything. But, she cautioned in a recent performance "Notes From The Field: Doing Time In Education The Baltimore Chapter," "This is one of those times, too, when 20 years from now people will be asking where were you back then?

The idea of a movement is not that you sit and wait for this movement to happen. A movement is when you move.” If you are moved to engage in a dialogue on racial justice in America, please join us for these four sessions and invite your friends! In the words of the Reverend Dr. Rebecca Parker, "The struggle for racial justice in America is a struggle to inhabit my own country, a struggle to become a participant in the actual history and social reality of the land in which I have been born and to which I belong."

For the purpose of making packets of handouts, please e-mail Rev. Clare if you would like to participate (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).
