Sunday, October 11th, we welcome Sam Teitel, a Unitarian Universalist poet, educator, and punk rocker. He is currently studying at Andover Newton Theological School with a focus on interfaith leadership. After his projected graduation from Andover Newton Theological School in May of 2016 he plans to pursue ordination as a Unitarian Universalist minister. He is currently serving as the ministerial intern at First Church in Boston. He believes in creating a worship environment that is lively, joyful, and thought-provoking.
His sermon is based on a famous story in the book of Genesis about Jacob having a literal wrestling match with God. As Unitarian Universalists it can seem like we as a spiritual community are wrestling with the idea of God all the time, or else wrestling with each other over the idea of God. In this service we will be exploring what it means to wrestle God, both on a physical an on a spiritual level.

Welcome back! This Sunday is our Intergenerational Ingathering. You are invited to bring any object of personal or spiritual significance from your home or your travels to place upon our altar. Perhaps you have collected sea glass or shells or read an inspiring book or took a photograph of a place or person you visited. You may of course bring a small amount of water to place in our communal bowl. Today’s message will examine the sacred in the ordinary and ask the question from where do you receive fragments of holiness, glimpses of eternity, brief moments of insight and connection?
