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

8.11.19, A Covenantal Faith, Guest Speaker Julia Landis

A covenant is a coming together of two or more parties in an agreement, commitment, or pledge. As UUs, covenants are made as aspirational goals we hope to fulfill; when we fall short, we make amends to be in right relations with each other. What if we were to extend that idea to the personal relationship to our faith? What does it mean to be a covenantal faith?

Julia Landis is a lifelong UU, and will be a first year student at the University of Virginia this fall. She is a member of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Church in Charlottesville, VA. She is a regular attendee at General Assembly, and last year was the Senior Business Manager to the GA Youth. She is an alumnus of Summer Seminary and the Luminary Leaders program.

8.4.19, Where the Spirit May Reside, Tom Ott

Our eight Principles are the foundation of our faith as we presently live it. And they ask much of us, both theologically and practically. A question that should be prominent for all Unitarian Universalists is “How may I embody this faith that encourages freedom while urging responsibility?”
