Sunday, June 12, 2016: “For What the Soul Hungers”


Host/Presenter: Karen Fothergill

We will examine a sermon by Rev. Josh Pawelek of the Unitarian Universalist Society (East Manchester, Connecticut) entitled “For What the Soul Hungers.” Rev. Pawelek suggests human beings share an innate “soul hunger” for reconciliation, a “circle unbroken.”

While we don’t always feel it, there comes those times when we are shaken up, awakened, called. In these moments perhaps we produce a work of art to mend a broken society; perhaps we forgive one who has wronged us; perhaps we feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, free the prisoner, welcome the stranger. Perhaps we work for a more just society. Perhaps we sing. Perhaps we dance. Perhaps we build the beloved community.Pawelek_FWTSH

However and whenever the possibility for reconciliation presents itself to us, may we hear this ancient call: “May we do what we can to make the circle whole.”

Karen Fothergill will share a photography and a calligraphy project that has been used to create healing between groups that have been involved in fighting and war.

A presentation by local refugees and a performance by the choir will also be a part of our service.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on these journeys. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
