Worship for All
Unitarian Universalist worship is a time set aside for the experience of something special. Call it the Holy, a sacred hour, or call it community of active love, in the end it, should be a transformative experience from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Worship is made up of small and large moments tied together with bonds of joy, sorrow, lament and most of all love.

The Written Word
I have very few full text sermons since I usually preach from notes. A video archive at First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh can be found here. Mount Vernon audio recordings, and more recently, video recordings can be found here.
I particularly like these from Pittsburgh:
Sept. 26, 2021, Am I Wrong?
Oct. 17, 2021 The Joy of Conflict
Dec. 12, 2021 The Cosmic Christ
May 8, 2022 Our Bodies Ourselves
From Mount Vernon:
June 9, 2019, Let There be Music, Let there be Love
Aug. 18, 2019 Building Hope
Sept. 22, 2019 Happiness... Age of E-Friendship

I love to write, it is my primary creative outlet. I've provided just a few samples of readings, prayers, opening words, written sermons, and a eulogy. Click on any item in the list below:
