About Our Sunday Service
Reaching out to a new community is difficult, and we hope you find us welcoming, challenging, interesting, and perhaps even good fun. Your presence and participation would be a gift to us. As most UU churches are, we are a “Come-As-You-Are” congregation. We encourage you to wear what is comfortable: not only in clothing, but also in attitudes, questions, beliefs, traditions, and politics. In this intentionally inclusive congregation, you are welcome whatever your religious or non-religious background, race, cultural and sexual orientation. There are no special prayers, creeds or dogmas to memorize, and we do not use a Bible or scripture of any kind -- only a songbook. If this sounds good to you, then perhaps this is the congregation you’ve been looking for!

Inclement Weather Notice
Wondering if Sunday services are cancelled? Call our office (215-752-5689) after 9 a.m. on Sunday. If services are cancelled, you will hear a temporary "cancellation message" instead of our typical message.

“Passover Seder Celebration”
~ Janet Kelly, Rich Kelly, and Erina Pearlstein
Join us for UUFLB's annual Passover Seder. Our morning will include the Passover story, singing, and dancing followed by a traditional potluck Passover meal. The only rule is no bread or cake. We will begin at our usual 10:30 time but we will meet in the cafeteria for this special service for all ages. All are welcome. You don't have to be Jewish to find meaning in this holiday. It is a metaphor for all who strive to be free.

Janet Kelly has been a member and contributor to UUFLB for many years. She holds close her Jewish roots and shares the traditions and messages with us whenever she has time. Recently recovered from foot surgery, Janet is a classic over-achiever, attempting to balance work, school, family, UUFLB and many more interests with grace. We are honored to have her organize and conduct this service yet again.

“The Very Hungry Spirit (Based on Eric Carle’s, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’)” ~ Chris Ermer
As we grow and age we change. We are always moving from one version of ourselves to another. That life-long process requires the right food for thought. Carle’s classic kids book ends triumphantly with the newly minted butterfly opening its wings on the final page. But butterflies are hungry too and surely the saga continues as all creatures need to keep feeding to develop and live. So it is with us, our growth may be more incremental but it is happening all the time hopefully toward a more positive self and world. What changes would you like to see in yourself and the world around you? Join in as we emerge from our homes to a bright new day and celebrate Easter morning together.

Chris Ermer currently sits on the Board of Trustees and has been past Membership team leader. Chris is an avid sports fan and can be heard on WBCB (am) doing Phillies play by play on occasion besides his normal duties as head remote engineer, nighttime DJ, & host of ‘UpWords’. He attends UUFLB with his wife Donna and daughter Kyla.

“A Rising Tide: How Spirituality Can Save Your Congregation” ~ Mark Bernstein
Spirituality has many meanings and takes many forms in our UU congregations. However defined, is there a relationship between spirituality and growth? Are strong, vital and growing congregations populated by people who pursue spiritual lives? This sermon will explore this connection and demonstrate how spirituality can 
"lift all boats” in our congregation. 

We welcome back Mark Bernstein this month. He is a former member of the Congregational Life Staff of the UUA and currently a member of the Central East Region Adjunct Staff. He has been a proud member of the UU Church of Delaware County in Media, PA for 24 years. Mark has returned to the field of disabilities, helping others transform their lives.

“The Transformative Power of Gratitude”
~ Dave Chapman
There are different experiences in our lives that cause us to experience different levels of gratitude. Sometimes our sense of gratitude is simple and modest, and other times our sense of gratitude is profound and transformative. The role of our life experiences in enabling us to feel grateful can also lead us to consider the nature of meaning in our lives as Unitarian Universalists.

Dave Chapman is a freelance writer and teaches several classes in the Humanities as an Adjunct Professor at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University. Dave is an active member of the First Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Hunterdon County in Baptistown, New Jersey. He is also an Interfaith Minister and has delivered sermons at eighteen Unitarian Universalist congregations in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

“ Remembering the Holocaust in Story & Song”
~ David Wisnia with Avi Wisnia
In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day, world renowned Cantor and Auschwitz survivor David S. Wisnia will be speaking and singing. Cantor Wisnia will be accompanied on piano by his grandson Avi, as he recounts their recent travels back to Poland, with stories about the Holocaust and music that they will perform together. Please let your friends and family know about this service. Opportunities like this are becoming rarer. David S. Wisnia has a remarkable voice, and he uses it to tell his remarkable story. 

A native of Warsaw, Poland, David is a graduate of the Yavneh-Tarbut Hebrew School System. David was also personally tutored by renown Cantors Gershon Sirota and Moshe Koussevitsky, singing in their respective choirs as well as performing on stage and on Polish radio. Cantor Wisnia is a survivor of the notorious Auschwitz Annihilation Camp where he was incarcerated for close to 3 years, saving his life by singing to entertain the Nazi SS and cell block leaders. More information about David’s story is available at www.onevoicetwolives.com.

“Let’s Talk About Race” ~ Youth-Led Community Day
Please join RE youth in this important program which they were involved in developing, as the culminating project following RE class explorations on privilege and justice. Through small and large group discussions, we will examine why and when it’s important to talk about race in our Fellowship, and strategize how we can better represent and welcome people of color. 

RE youth will also hold a bake sale following the service to support the development of a social justice lending library which will be housed on the RE cart.
