Community has become even more important in these challenging times. We offer multiple ways to connect.

We invite you to in person services! JOIN US!

While we no longer require vaccinations or masking, we strongly encourage both, as these practices keep us safer and healthier as a community.

For those who cannot make it in person to services, we offer livestreaming via YouTube. See this week’s service announcement directly below with the link. (Click on the picture.)

Sunday morning service videos can be accessed at your convenience on our Worship page or YouTube channel.

Sunday Morning Dialogs are planned for the 1st & 3rd Sundays at 9am. CLICK HERE for more information.

Storytime for Justice-Seeking Souls
Emily Parker, UUFANJ, Guest Speaker 

What do a UU minister, an itinerant rabbi, and a vagabond soup-maker have in common? Come listen to Emily Parker (UU FaithAction NJ) tell three stories of hunger and serve up some hope.

Music: Dr. Louise Chernosky, Nicole Kennelly

Emily Parker serves as Communications Coordinator at UU FaithAction New Jersey. Emily is also a seminarian, completing her M.Div. with a specialization in Public Theology at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Emily is a lifelong UU who grew up in the old stone walls of Hunterdon UU in New Jersey.

September Monthly Theme: WELCOME

Hospitality is simply love on the loose.

Joan D. Chittister

I was beginning to learn that home is the space within us and between us where we feel safe—and brave. It is not a physical space as much as it is a field of being.

Valarie Kaur

He drew a circle that shut me out—
Heretic, a rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!

Edwin Markham

[Hospitality] is the first step toward dismantling the barriers of the world. Hospitality is the way we turn a prejudiced world around one heart at a time.

Joan D. Chittister

I believe every inch of America is sacred, from sea to shining sea. I believe we make it holy by who we welcome and by how we relate to each other. Call it my Muslim eyes on the American project. “We made you different nations and tribes that you may come to know one another,” says the Qur’an.

Eboo Patel

We belong to every part of our lives and every part of our lives belongs to us. Even the failures. The cruelty. The betrayals. The addictions. The cowardice. Until we embrace and welcome back those scared and tender parts with the kindness and forgiveness we so generously give to others, we will never be whole. We will never be home. 

Rev. Scott Tayler

It’s amazing really. As a human being all you have to do is enumerate exactly the way you don’t feel at home in the world, and the moment you’ve uttered the exact dimensionality of your exile, you are already on your way home.

David Whyte

This is going to sound crazy. Say yes to everything. Accept [and welcome in] all offers. Go along with the plan. Support someone else’s dream. Say: “yes”; “right”; “sure”; “I will”; “okay”; “of course”; “YES!”….When the answer to all questions is “yes,” you enter a new world, a world of action, possibility, and adventure..

Patricia Ryan Madson

Hospitality is a form of worship.
