Will our bells ring to sound the alarm on climate?

UUCM Bells Ringing

At The 11th hour of the 11th day of the month, UUCM joins other Marblehead churches to sound the alarm about climate warming - for 11 minutes. 

Several people are necessary as it’s a strenuous bell to ring continuously. Please know that other churches are also ringing their bells at this time.



Jack Weltner, Linda Weltner, Nancy De Muth and Tricia Sullivan, all members of the Unitarian-Universalist Church’s Climate Matters Task Force, hold signs to protest the building of an outdated fossil-fuel Peaker plant to meet times of high energy demand in Marblehead and other towns in the Commonweatlh.
Members of the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Marblehead joined the September 7th protest against the fossil-fueled Peaker plant being constructed in Peabody. In 2015 the Marblehead Light Department committed $31 million of Marblehead taxpayer money to build an outdated gas-fueled plant to meet our energy needs during peak hours, although other states are currently building modern state-of the-art battery-based plants which do not contribute to climate change.

The protest was followed by a dramatic die-in, during which protesters lay on the ground in chalk outlines while a tuba player performed “Taps,” to call attention to the fact that fossil fuel pollution also contributes to higher rates of asthma and heart disease in neighboring towns.

The Service on September 4th 2022 was on the subject of The Ministry for the Future. It was recorded and is available by clicking HERE
