“Of Plagues, Hardened Hearts, and Wandering in the Wilderness”

April 5, 2020

On April 5, 2020, the First Church Unitarian of Littleton, Massachusetts had its fourth online-only worship service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Before this service started, we showed a video (with original music by our Music Director) for the gathering time. You can see that video here. The service was titled “Of Plagues, Hardened Hearts, and Wandering in the Wilderness”. The topic was chosen in honor of Passover, which our Jewish siblings, friends and neighbors would celebrate the next week. If you watch the video on Youtube and go to the description, click on “See more”. There, you will see blue time stamps that enable you to move forward and back to any individual worship element.

“A UU Appreciation of Rosh Hashanah”

September 29, 2019

On September 29, 2019 at the First Church Unitarian, Littleton, MA, we had a “Unitarian Universalist Appreciation of Rosh Hashanah”. Together, we learned a few things about this important Jewish holiday and a few of its traditions. Here you will see a bit about the shofar and hear some brief remarks I made, ending with an excerpt (just the very beginning and ending) of a ritual inspired by the Jewish tradition of Tashlich, or “casting”.
