The sermons of the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia, PA

International Justice Sunday: Think Globally, Act Globally, Consulting Minister Rob Keithan

There’s great logic in the adage “Think Globally, Act Locally.” The problem is that there are a whole lot of people beyond our community struggling with hunger, poverty, and oppression.  We can’t do everything everywhere, but we can do some things somewhere. How do we choose and what do we do?

Quest for Meaning, Rev. Kent Matthies and USG Choir

This is part II of a sermon series begun by Rob Keithan on October 9.  Today we will explore how we as a congregation identify our core beliefs and values?  How do we as individuals find and claim a clear vision for the living of our lives?  How do we establish a long-term, healthy sense of belonging with passions for living the best life possible?

Claiming the Power… of Faith? Rob Keithan, Consulting Minister

As much as we might want to resist labeling ourselves, there can be great power in naming one’s identity and purpose.  Language is limited but it’s what we have.  This service will explore how we see ourselves and why it matters.

Entering the River of Forgiveness, Rev. Kent Matthies and USG Choir

Come celebrate the Jewish High Holy Days.  Humility is essential if we are going to take full advantage of the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur opportunities for atonement.  Asking forgiveness should not involve humiliation or tearing oneself down.  When we become right-sized we feel our glory, inspiration and joy of new ways and the New Year.
