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

1.24.16, Christmas Magic, Rev. Kent Matthies

Born in the middle of the night and poverty a baby touches countless lives with joy and hope: magic!  Soft lights and sacred music bring us home to center: magic.  Feel the power of love beyond belief.  Feel Christmas Magic.

12.18.16, Kwanzaa Celebration

We will have a joyous time lighting candles, telling stories, and moving to the beats of African drumming. Enjoy the dynamic, inspirational Universal African Dance & Drum Ensemble who will lift up the principles of Kwanzaa: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.

12.11.16, The Wisdom of Old Turtle, E. Ashley Izard, Mark Dougherty and the USG Choir

Old Turtle is an enchanting fable that promotes a deeper understanding of the earth and our relationship with all the beings who inhabit it. The book was selected the American Booksellers Association 1993 Book of the Year; composer Joseph Martin set the author’s words to music. It’s a service that the whole family can enjoy.

12.4.16, Reverence for Loss, Rev. Kent Matthies

At the Holiday season we emphasize giving thanks for what we have.  But the holidays can also remind us of what we have lost.  Many of us anguish over loss of loved ones, relationships, health, jobs — How can we learn from and even revere loss?
