"Sacred Among Us"
rev. daniel lawlor, minister
“The raw materials of the Christmas mood are a newborn baby, a family, friendly animals, and labor...life keeps coming on, keeps seeking to fulfill itself, keeps affirming the margin of hope in the presence of desolation, pestilence, and despair.”
-Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman, "Merry Christmas"
What and who is sacred among us? How do we respond? Whether the beauty of the dark night, compassion in the emergency room, or the unexpected laughter that arrives even in hard times, what and who is sacred? In this season of rededication, let's look to stories from ancient traditions - and not so long ago New York- to imagine and seek what is sacred among us. Join us for grounding songs, a story for all ages, joys and sorrows, meditation and reflection on the sacred among us. See you Sunday.

Rev. Daniel Lawlor
Dear UU Congregation of the Hudson Valley,
The kindness of the community at UU Congregation of the Hudson Valley was my first impression upon guest preaching this winter.
I could tell the care and intentionality practiced by the worship committee in preparation for Sunday, and was inspired by your passion for Religious Education and your commitment to Allies for Racial Equity. My wife, Yumi, and I are inspired by caring communities seeking to connect and do good. I am humbled and honored to be your new part-time Contract Minister!
The doors are open for the Sunday service!
All masked, vaccinated and boosted individuals are welcome and encouraged to join us in the sanctuary.
The livestream and virtual coffee hour will continue to be available.

WHO WE ARE
Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal, non-creedal religion-- meaning we are bound together not by dogma or doctrine, but by our commitment to be in intentional and thoughtful relationship with one another as we walk the journey of seeking the truth.
As a community that is committed to living, working, and worship with each other in ways that foster individual and collective growth, we agree to live by our covenant.
To create an atmosphere of trust and safety, we agree to call each other back into covenant and to forgive ourselves and others.
