Lives Lived (Sun. 12 Jan, 2020 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton & Rev. Lynn Harrison.

 

On Sunday, Rev. Lynn Harrison and I will offer a series of short eulogies, as we look to the lives of a number of people in the wider world—the famous and the not-so-famous—who died in 2019. We will offer tributes to lives lived that made an enduring impact in our world, from Jean Vanier to Ram Dass, and Mary Oliver to Toni Morrison. Our resident musicians will offer music by James Ingram, Roxette, Joao Gilberto, and Captain & Tennille.

While it may seem strange to attend a service packed with eulogies, this annual service has now become a much-beloved tradition at First Unitarian, for it is a life-affirming experience to lift up compelling and complicated examples of lives lived well.

In faith and love,
Shawn
