“Spirit of Power”

Rev. Paul Beedle

In The Idea of Justice, economist Amartya Sen explored the meaning of justice in a free society. Rev. Paul will reflect on the Poor People’s Campaign in light of Sen’s analysis.

Special Collection: on the first Sunday of every month, we dedicate the offering to an important cause or organization. This Sunday the chosen recipient is the UU Meeting House of Provincetown, MA, which was flooded by a winter storm in January. The 1847 building took on up to 6 inches of water on the first floor. There is much damage that is not covered by flood insurance.

“What will you be doing for Lent this year?”

Guest Speaker: Sister Alison McCrary

Whether the 40-day Christian season of Lent means absolutely nothing to you, brings back painful memories of false guilt or shame, or is season of deep reflection on honesty and hope for you, this service will provide space for reflection to take an assessment of your life and plan for renewal of commitments that are important to you.

While prayer, fasting, and almsgiving have traditionally been at the heart of Lenten observance, we will explore a new take on the season looking at the spaces of our hearts that suffer from the illusion that we are separate and apart and see how Lent can be used as an opportunity to be honest with the Creator/God/Spirit/Universe so it may be honest with us. We’ll share about a Lent that focuses on the quality of our connections that can restore our dignity and call us back to ourselves, to a place where we acknowledge our responsibility to act co-creatively with the divine to evolve ourselves and humanity for the greater good.

Sister Alison McCrary is a social justice attorney, a Catholic nun, Executive Director of the National Police Accountability Project, a mediator, and a spiritual advisor on Louisiana’s death row.
