Horizon News & Announcements



Friday, October 28, 2016
All members and friends are invited to have a discussion on ministry, expectations and goals for the first year of Rev. Lora Brandis' ministry with Horizon.  Kenn Hurto, Congregational Life Staff Member & Lead Executive for the Southern Region Unitarian Universalist Association will facilitate the gathering.  The "start-up" will last all weekend as on the following day, Kenn will meet with Lora, the board, circle coordinators, and staff to continue the discussion of our new shared ministry. Kenn will then preach Sunday morning on “A Healthy Sense of Urgency.”

It's time to tell our congregation's story, clarify our values and create our future story. Stop by the RE hallway and participate in Horizon's "dream board" and then show up Friday night to deepen and fortify our beloved community.

If you need childcare for Friday night, please send your request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Monday October 24th.



Horizon and our very own Marty Robinson were both honored this week at Metrocrest Services Seasons of Service volunteer appreciation luncheon.

 Horizon was honored for their longstanding commitment to the organization.  The program cited Reverend Dennis Hamilton’s role in organizing the first CROP Hunger Walk, the church’s recent commitment to collecting food staples each and every Sunday, as well as the ongoing work volunteering across many Metrocrest programs.

 Mary Robinson was honored for her early role with the CROP Walk and personally logging over 1500 volunteer hours!


 Congratulations Horizon!  A big thank you to those who have volunteered over the years – we are truly building a stronger community together.

We Are All Rational Mystics

Rev. Lora Brandis

“The perennial philosophy holds that the world’s great spiritual traditions, in spite of their obvious differences, express the same fundamental truth about the nature of reality, a truth that can be directly apprehended during a mystical experience.”                                                                            – John Horgan


 Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources including “direct experience of transcending mystery and wonder” and “the guidance of reason and the results of science.” Oftentimes a direct experience of the transcendent can seem unreasonable, irrational and even out of the realm of science. On the contrary, it is in the synthesis of experience and reason that we find the center of our faith.
