Sunday Service: “Renewal at Home”
led by Rev. Laurel Gray
September 27th at 10:30 am
As we continue to live more of our lives from home and weather pandemic life, this service will be about finding renewal at home. In our effort to support our kids and families as we rethink Religious Education, we’re now offering a guide called “Soulful Home” that helps us build rituals of renewal at home. Today we’ll dive into this practice of seeking renewal at home together.

Share the Plate Nominations Requested
Each month, UUCSW shares our Sunday collections equally with a non-profit organization that does work in the wider community that is aligned with our UU principles and values through our “Share the Plate” program. If you would like to nominate an organization as a future month's Share the Plate recipient, please submit your nomination ASAP using our Share the Plate Nomination Form. Our volunteer Share the Plate Review Board will thoughtfully consider all nominations. Thank you!
Racial Justice Committee
Next meeting: Wednesday, September 30th from 4:00 to 5:30 pm via Zoom. The general format will be to discuss business, then dive into a resource or two that we’ve read, watched or listened to, on our own time. At the September meeting, we will connect Kendi’s call for identifying and changing racist policies (from his How to Be An Antiracist) to the issue of housing policies that promote segregation, as recently reported on by The Boston Globe. And then ask the question, How do housing policies in Westborough and surrounding towns stand up to racial justice? All welcome! For information or the Zoom link, please contact Jane Walsh at janenboro@aol.com.

How’s the timing? Are you generally interested in joining us, but late afternoon doesn’t work for you? Please let Jane know of your interest at janenboro@aol.com or 508-393-9206.

Save the date for the next racial justice book discussion! Wednesday, November 18 at 7:00 pm via Zoom. Those who attended the book discussion in September chose Caste: The Origins of our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson for the next read. Jerry Breecher and Kim Hall will continue to facilitate. Stay tuned for Zoom link.
