Love of Language or the Language of Love

February 24, 2019 - 10:15am

On Sunday, Feb 24th at 10:15 a.m. at the Berlin Township Community Center in Beach Lake, PA, Susan Lory will present a sermon originally given at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Northborough, Massachusetts by Reverend Justine Sullivan. This sermon, entitled "A Love of Language or a Language of Love," focuses on the evolution of language as it responds to changes in culture and personal identity. Rev. Sullivan notes that even very sensitive and loving people may, in their dedication to the rules of the English language, inadvertently hurt and exclude people who are not "standard." This talk highlights the personal and spiritual costs of this exclusion.

All are invited to the one hour service, sponsored by the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, which will be followed by a social time with refreshments. Directions can be found at
