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

4.29.18, That’s What Friends Are For, Rev. Kent Matthies

We may enjoy our Facebook “friends.” However, we long for more than social media connections. One of the best reasons to come to church is to make spiritual friends.  With flickers of hope for making a spiritual connection, we encounter others; over time we kindle long burning flames of lasting friendships, with accompanying well being, love and hope. Bring a friend of yours to this worship focusing on friendship.

4.22.18, Our Transforming Climate, Rev. Alison Cornish

As the Earth’s climate continues to change in both subtle and dramatic ways, our species is being challenged to transform as well. Unitarian Universalism can help us with this change – if we dig deep into our tradition and engage in everyday spiritual practices. Join us for this exploration of the power of a faith-rooted response to climate change.

4.15.18, Church Goers Live Longer and Better Lives, Rev. Kent Matthies

You don’t have to believe me. I am a biased Minister. In 2016, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a report based on over 74,000 women which documented life quantity and quality increase with regular religious community attendance. Unitarian Universalism and USG save lives and multiply blessings. Shouldn’t we be generously dedicated (including financially) to supporting USG? Come out to joyfully celebrate Pledge Sunday! Rescheduled from the snow closure. Will be followed by the Stewardship Lunch.

4.8.18, The First Noble Truth, Rev. Kent Matthies

The First Noble Truth of Buddhism is that life is suffering.  We get old, experience disease and heartbreak.  Life is not always fair and we should never trick ourselves to believe otherwise.  How do we deal with suffering?

4.1.18, Beginning Again with Grace: Easter Sunday, Rev. Kent Matthies

Whether you believe the resurrection was real or a myth, come celebrate Easter with us! Even when you think all is lost in despair, hope can and does rise again.
