An Invitation from our Co-Ministers
Welcome to North Shore Unitarian Church!
We are so glad your path has led you here. We are Atheists and Christians, Buddhists and Mystics, Jews and Sufis, all of the above and none of the above. We come together to build community that nurtures our spirits and takes a stand for love and justice.
Our tradition, Unitarian Universalism, has historic roots but a fresh approach to religion and spirituality. It acknowledges that each of us is on our own journey, but also reminds us that we need one another along the way.
People often come here longing for a community to support them in living their deepest values. Our congregation includes people of all ages and of many different backgrounds. We celebrate with one another in times of joy, and hold one another in times of sorrow. We seek to learn and grow together, enriching our own lives, and we work to bless the world with our acts of service.
Sometimes people come in pain or confusion, looking for answers. How do I offer my children a moral foundation in these complex times? How do I cope with the challenges the world has thrown at me? Why do I feel empty even when things seem like they are going well? What is life calling me to be or do?
Ours is not a religious tradition that offers "The Answers." Instead we companion each other as we live the questions, supporting one another through all that life brings us.
We don’t all believe the same things.
We don’t all use the same words to talk about what is sacred.
We do share a deep thoughtfulness about our values — about how we want to live and how we can do our part to help heal the world.
We look forward to meeting you!
Revs. Emily & Marcus Hartlief
