Unitarian Universalist sermons are intended to encourage people to think about what they are doing and believing in the name of religion. Knowledge is power and our greater understanding of ourselves and our world is the antidote to mental and social powerlessness. Our clergy do not assume to know the "whole truth", but believe that the pursuit of truth is worthwhile. It is neither essential nor important for the hearer to agree with the minister: it may be as helpful for the former to know how and why s/he disagrees with what is heard.
To us, religion is broad by definition, and all that affects the happiness, well-being, and meaning of humanity is of ultimate importance and, therefore, religious in the deepest sense of the word. Thus, sermons on economics, education, and politics may be included as well as those that address "spirit", "spirituality", transcendence, or health and healing, for example.
May you gain from reading or hearing sermons such as those encountered on this web site, and you are welcome to be present with us on any and all Sunday "Celebrations of Life", as we call our weekly public service.
