with Elizabeth DeCoux as Worship Leader.
Author James Baldwin once said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.” In this season of new beginnings, as the Jewish High Holy Days are upon us, let’s take some time to turn inward. Rev. Joanna Lubkin will reflect on the spiritual practice of cheshbon ha’nefesh, accounting of the soul, and she’ll invite us to check in with ourselves, taking stock of our past year and our interactions with others, and to return to our truest and best selves.
About Our Guest Speaker: Rev. Joanna Lubkin is deeply connected to a number of Unitarian Universalist communities in the Boston area: she serves as the half-time minister at All Souls Church in Braintree, helps out in the office at First Church in Jamaica Plain, and is the Worship Arts Lead at The Sanctuary Boston. She’s a member and an Affiliated Community Minister at Arlington Street Church in Boston.
During this time of social distancing, when in-person worship has been suspended, BBUUC will continue our weekly worship in video format that you can find on YouTube each Sunday morning at the “BBUUC Video” channel. Simply subscribe to the channel on YouTube, and watch our weekly worship services, modified for video viewing until we can resume gathering together for worship in our church sanctuary. The worship videos will remain on the site for viewing at your convenience. New services are posted at 6am on Sunday mornings.
We invite you to submit your Joys and Concerns via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday at noon of each week for inclusion in the upcoming Sunday’s worship service. Please note “J&C” in the subject line. For your privacy, we will share our Joys and Concerns using first names and last initials only.
