First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

The flaming chalice is the symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith, embodying the fire of commitment and power of community. This sculptural interpretation was hand-crafted for our congregation and is displayed on the front wall of the sanctuary.

Oct 13: Chosen Community - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

Religion is a "chosen pilgrimage," says UU minister John Buehrens. We choose a community of faith. And we choose to return to it, over and over again, coming back to where we can be renewed by spiritual connection, celebration, and inspiration. Today we'll consider what calls us back to Unitarian Universalism, again and again. This Sunday we mark National Coming Out Day, and designate our monthly share-the-plate for the LGBT Center of Greater Reading.
