With Guest Preacher Lisa Fagerstrom of First Parish of Stow and Acton

With so many challenges, struggles, and conflicts in our communities and our world, it can sometimes seem as if we are powerless to find and be a part of constructive solutions. This sermon will reflect on and consider ways to accept, embrace, and enact the “power of our ripple” to live into and live out our UU Principles in our daily lives, as we live into and effect change in ourselves, our communities, and our world.

Lisa Fagerstrom is currently the Associate Chaplain at Carleton-Willard Village.
