"A UU Theology of Atonement"


In her book After the Good News: Progressive Faith Beyond Optimism, Rev. Nancy McDonald Ladd dissects how, when, and why Unitarian Universalists fell out of the practice of atonement. As the Jewish High Holy Day of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) will begin at sunset on Sunday, September 24, at church, we’ll be in conversation with Rev. Nancy’s work along with other Jewish theologians, as a means of reflecting on the place of atonement and repair in our own spiritual and communal lives.

All persons attending a regular Sunday Service in person are encouraged to wear masks in the sanctuary and a special mask-required section is set aside. 

Service Offering

A vital piece of moving through this crisis is maintaining our UUCM building and systems. If you're able to participate in our customary Sunday morning plate donation, your donations of any amount will gratefully be received by clicking here, Sunday Morning Offering (online) or text the word "give" to 781-381-4488 and follow the prompts. Pledges can also be set up via text but you would have to text "amount+ pledge" (for example: 50 pledge or the amount you'd like to donate). You may also send checks to UUCM, 28 Mugford St. Marblehead, MA 01945. Thank you.

* In case you haven't done this before, it will require you to create a new account to donate both online or by text *


We have Covid tests available in the Church

Prayers for People

We're continuing with the opportunity to submit your joy or sorrow for the Prayers for the People ritual ahead of time.  Click here to submit before the service:

If you use the form, you don't have to write it on a piece of paper if you're attending in person, and you don't have to type it into the chat quickly during the service if you're on Zoom.

We welcome all people without regard to age, race, national origin, ableness, class, sexual orientation or gender identity.
