NOTE: These pages continue to change as we try to provide convenience and options with the transition to online services. Media players on these pages will now default to audio, which is just the traditional sermon portion of the service. There is a control (director's clapboard icon) to switch the player to video. If available, it is typically the full service. You can also select the sermon title in any list of sermons, which will take you to a page with the audio/video options for just that service.

Guest Minister Rev. Sophia Lyons. Rev Lyons currently serves as the Intern/Sabbatical Minister at the UU Church of Haverhill as well as year-round Island Minister on Star Island–one of the few Unitarian Universalist retreat and conference centers off the coast of Maine.

In 2019, she graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Boston University’s School of Theology–the alma mater of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and known to many as The School of the Prophets. Her life’s work, study and ministry has much to do with radical welcome and spiritual healing as a pathway towards collective liberation. She lives on the north shore of Massachusetts with her partner, Jason, and two daughters, Olive and Poppy.
