How can we further redefine our relationship to work as we have the past two years? It feels that we were forced to look at our work lives with a different perspective. Rev. Teague asks how might we, with some freedom from our long held capitalist economic beliefs, change for the better?
The COVID-19 pandemic response makes clear that American worker health and safety are not guaranteed, and self-actualization through vocation is a rare workplace luxury.

Join Rev. Jonathan Rogers for the first session of our new worship series, Working, a theological examination of labor.
How do we go about healing generational toxic masculinities? This week, we explored radical self-awareness, self-reflection, and wholeness, on the lifelong search for wholeness and balance. Join Ministerial Intern Aiden McMahon for this urgent message.
The Blessing of Choice
What does it mean to support gender equality in the context of our UU faith tradition? How do we articulate the blessing of women and their autonomy? In the first session of our series Feminist Theologies, we explore the UU theology of reproductive choice that includes the sanctity of life. Dominion over one’s body is sacred and must be protected.
Learning as Liberation
What if new learning about old histories disrupts our beloved narrative? As the well-reinforced architecture of our collective history begins to crumble, where do we find ourselves amidst the rubble? What do we need to rebuild a sense of history that is more honest and just for all Americans? How can our faith lead us to receive new learning as liberation?
The fourth and final session of the Black Expressions of UUism series is co-preached by Rev. Mykal Slack and Rev. Taryn Strauss.
