Prisoners of Hope
Rev. John Saxon & Rev. Jacqueline Brett
Twenty-five years ago, Cornel West, the well-known African American public intellectual, social critic, and political activist, told young women and men who were about to graduate from college, that what they, our nation, and the world most needed was an “audacious sense of hope.” And God knows that’s even more true today than it was then.

A New Chalice for the Sanctuary

The flaming chalice is the symbol of Unitarian Universalism. In years past ERUUF had a large, pottery chalice in the sanctuary. It had a beautiful pale turquoise glaze and was filled with sand so the oil lamp sat at the right height. Though beautiful, it was heavy and awkward. One Sunday morning a few years ago, as the furniture was quickly being rearranged from a performance the night before, the podium with the chalice hit a bump on the floor. It stopped suddenly but the chalice was in motion and flew off the stand and shattered when it hit the ground.
