"Mercy Me"
~ Emily Quarles-Mowrer
January 3, 2016

Every year, when the calendar turns and the sun returns, I think about what in my life I should strive to improve. Classics are things like exercising more, cooking at home, sticking to my budget. This year the Pope has a suggestion — he has declared 2016 to be the year of Mercy. As Unitarian Universalists, we speak about kindness and compassion, but not usually mercy. In this time of renewal, what gifts can the practice of mercy reveal to us?

About Our Speaker: We welcome back Emily Quarles-Mowrer to our pulpit. She is a life-long Unitarian Universalist. She currently worships with the UU Fellowship of Pottstown, where she has been an active member of the worship committee for over nine years.
