First Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church

Selected Sermons

A Matter of Public Trust (MP3) 13 min, 12 MB
The Reverend Marjorie Montgomery
November 19, 2017
Our heroes, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry Thoreau taught us to be SELF RELIANT! YES!! But the world does not work very well with every man for himself. (Or every woman for herself.) So how may we live with these two contrasting points of view? T’aint easy, that’s for sure.

Revisioning Part III: Return Again (MP3) 25 min, 23 MB
The Reverend Annie Foerster
November 12, 2017
For this series of services, we have been singing the song in the teal hymnal called Return Again. ‘Return to who you are,’ say the lyrics, not ‘return to who you have been.’ What does that even mean? I think it means making choices—choosing one of three options open to you for the future. I’ll give you a tour of current operations, but the choices are up to you.

Revisioning Part II: A Story Worth Telling (MP3) 18 min, 17 MB
The Reverend Annie Foerster
November 5, 2017
Congregations in our denomination are often referred to as “The Sacred Community.” What makes them sacred is the easy part. What makes them community is often more complicated, because each one has a story beyond its history, beyond its structure. But, complicated or not, nuanced or out there, it is a story worth discovering—and telling.

Revisioning I: The Sleeping Beauty Expose (MP3) 21 min, 20 MB
The Reverend Annie Foerster
October 22, 2017
I’m a firm believer that our childhood stories tell
us a lot more about life than we have realized.
Buried in our fairy-tale memories are the answers
we seek for life’s difficult questions. I’ve always
thought something was left out of the Sleeping
Beauty story. Let’s explore it together as we
look ahead to life at First Jefferson Unitarian
Universalist Church.

False Fronts and Disguises (MP3) 21 min, 19 MB
The Reverend Annie Foerster
October 1, 2017
What does it mean to take someone at face value?
Is the face we present to the world our true face or
are we all mask-makers of the first degree? What’s
behind your false front?

To Hope and Back Again (MP3) 26 min, 24 MB
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
September 10, 2017
Join us for Rev. Jennifer’s last time of
leading worship at First Jefferson. She offers
a message of thanksgiving and her wishes for
the future of the church.
