 WELCOME


Welcome to the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence.  We are a congregation with a tradition of liberal faith and committed social action, and a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.  We begin our worship on Sunday mornings with a welcome to everyone: newcomers and longtime members, young and old and in-between, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, queer and straight.  When you visit us we will also welcome you with smiles, and with a communal worship service that we hope will inspire you, touch your heart, and make you want to stay and learn more about us.

We are a congregation that affirms and welcomes people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations.  We strive to be a caring community where children and adults can safely learn and grow in mind, spirit and desire to serve.  We come from many different faith traditions, and follow different paths.  What binds us together is our respect for each other, our willingness to listen, our commitment to the principles of Unitarian Universalism, and the promises we make to create a community together.  We worship, we teach our children and each other, we serve the hungry, we sponsor social justice programs and events.  And we have fun!

Our website contains information about our programs and ministries, and links to places to learn more about Unitarian Universalism.  We hope you enjoy exploring it.  The best way to learn about us is to visit us on Sunday morning.  We hope to see you soon.

 

Reverend Janet C. Bush, Minister

 Musical Sunday: But, seriously... 
 Gregory Hayes, Music Director
 
We are surrounded by noise, some of which carries meaning (think cell phones). Some of those sounds are musical--but are we listening anymore? What deeper insights might those particular sounds convey? And are we losing our ability to take them seriously? The morning's main musical offering will be Johannes Brahms's autumnal Trio in A minor for clarinet, cello, and piano, with guest musicians Robert Cantor and John Dunlop.
