Worship Services

Service: "The Future of Liberal Religion"

Rev Brock Leach: In an age in which people have unprecedented power to instigate change and organize themselves, our reliance on institutions to solve our problems is yielding to social entrepreneurship like never before.  Maybe we are the ones to usher in the future of liberal religion.  Maybe it's already happening. Rev. Leach is a community minister of the UU Church of Sarasota, helping develop and lead denominational efforts to educate and support religious entrepreneurs.

Service: "Got Joy?"

Rev. Jennifer Dant. Is joy relevant to Unitarian Universalists? And if it is, how do we "get it" when so much of the current culture seems joyless and frightening? Rev. Dant has been our chaplain and community minister.
