What makes a King out of a slave?  What makes the flag on the mast to wave?  What makes the elephant charge his tusk, in the misty mist or the dusky dusk?  What makes the muskrat guard (her) musk?” - Edgar “Yip” Harburg

The Lion found courage by doing a seemingly impossible task with the help of friends.  Where do we find courage to live and share who we are and what we believe?

Dogs have been our companions for thousands of years. We will explore our relationship with them, discuss companion animal rescue and offer ways to mourn the loss, or support others in mourning the loss, of a beloved fur friend. Joe and Pat Johnson, golden retriever rescuers for over 20 years, look forward to sharing their passion for dogs.

"We shall not cease from exploration

and the end of all our exploring

will be to arrive where we started

and know the place for the first time."

- T.S. Eliot (#685 in Singing the Living Tradition)

As a young adult I honestly never thought I'd want to join a church again. My spiritual journey has been circuitous and eclectic. I have arrived at a place that, in retrospect, seems inevitable, although I could not have imagined how I would get here. I look forward to discussing how my faith has evolved over time and throughout different stages of my life, and the role a beloved community can play in supporting an individual through their questioning.

The British scholar Dr. N.T. Wright has written, "When Jesus himself wanted to explain to his disciples what his forthcoming death was all about, he didn't give them a theory, he gave them a meal."  The climax of the Emmaus resurrection appearance story is "Then they described what had happened on the road, and how they came to recognize him in the breaking of the bread" (Luke 24:35).

Whatever we think of resurrection, whatever we think of Christianity, a shared meal and shared stories at a common table can be a sign of the presence of the Divine.  Chaplain James Gibbons Walker will share thoughts and ask questions about what this sign can mean for us. 

Please remember to celebrate by wearing a special hat for the Easter Hat Parade.  And please plan to stay after the service for the Easter Egg Hunt.

Mathew 13:33, Unitarian Universalist Spirituality, and the Theology of James Luther Adams. 

What are we doing on Sunday mornings?  What are we trying to do when we leave and go our separate ways?  Today, Chaplain James Gibbons Walker explores the work we share through the parable of the leaven and the concepts of James Luther Adams.

Our Middle School age religious education class, the Truth Seekers, recently conducted a survey of the beliefs we hold at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Southern Maryland.  The survey results confirmed that "we are a gathering of people in one place with many faiths."

Yet we walk together.  As we celebrate the twenty-third anniversary of our founding, Chaplain James Gibbons Walker invites reflection on the work and the rewards of our promise to be a fellowship of open minds.

Those who wish to become members of the Fellowship will have an opportunity to sign the membership book and be welcomed formally at this service.

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Southern Maryland turns 23 this month!

How do we understand and share our Living Tradition?  Chaplain James Gibbons Walker revisits an eighty year old document the Unitarians Face a New Age Statement of Doctrinal Agreements and Tensions to begin to identify the possibilities, pitfalls, and promise of participation in Unitarian Universalism.

Love is the theme today.  Love is biologically significant.  Evolution has provided animals, including humans, with the hormone oxytocin.  Among its many effects, its level increases with friendly touch and helps to create and maintain the bonds that so many of our interactions depend upon.
