Rev. Patricia Hatch is Coming to Maine!

Rev. Patricia Hatch is coming to Maine! This is her first stop on “Patricia’s Family History Preaching Tour!” She will be at the UU Meeting House, Pittsfield Maine, Sunday, June 16th. The Universalist Church was the congregation of her great grandparents, Flora and Dennison Walker, and their five children. Pictured is her grandmother, Ethel Walker, taking a photo of the church before significant renovation around the turn of the twentieth century! Her sermon is entitled, “Homecoming Inspirations.”

Congratulations to Jess & Ed!

We are so delighted to share this wonderful news! The sun is shining again at the Pittsfield UU Church! Rev. Jess Tardy’s path to UU ministry is unique in that she is an interfaith minister and a recent ChIME graduate. Modeling collaborative leadership, she and her partner, musician Ed Arnold, create a magical and sacred space for all present. What a blessing for this congregation, and for our UU Faith Tradition!

The VUU – A Handmaid’s Protest with Erin Walter

Worth watching this week’s episode of The VUU!

I admit, I was not going to watch the Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale because being familiar with Margaret Atwood’s powerful novel and living in a society where we have systemic elitism that lead to a version of what is otherwise depicted as a dystopian society where “things like this happen only happen on TV” are very much a reality in our day. With much transformation needed in our world, we all have to choose which call to answer and which cause to actively advocate. If anyone in Maine would like to participate in a Handmaid’s Vigil group, please let us know and we can connect you with others who are hoping to form one! Groups would go to State House, but also act locally in smaller numbers within their own communities.
