Worship should speak to a person’s mind, body and soul. It is an opportunity to lay down one’s daily pre-occupations and go deeper into reflecting upon what is most meaningful. Particularly now when the world at large is at such high levels of conflict and distress, providing space for silence and celebration, connection and direction, can be both soothing and liberating.
Worship in Unitarian Universalist congregations may seem unfamiliar to some: we draw from a great variety of sources, from ancient texts to modern poetry. Our services include some traditional elements such as hymns and prayers, but the content of these elements is not limited to one particular theology. Similarly, music in our worship may come from traditional western sources, but we also include many other diverse expressions.
In pandemic times we have had to experiment with online services. While never perfect, they have given us a chance to reconsider what makes effective worship, and the experience will inform our services going forward.
