#BlackLivesMatter in WorshipWeb

Recognizing that racism is an institutionalized pattern reaching far beyond Ferguson, Missouri (or any single incident) our WorshipWeb team is is building a special collection called #BlackLivesMatter. We invite you to submit your prayers, reflections, or other anti-racism worship resources to build on these worship resources from Standing on the Side of Love. You can also search our current selections, below.

WorshipWeb's mission is to provide resources for Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship services. The inspiring and diverse Words for Worship collection includes readings, prayers, meditations, and more, written by UUs. 

WorshipWeb Welcomes New Curator!

We are delighted to welcome ehewitt @ as WorshipWeb’s curator. Many Unitarian Universalists know Erika through her Skinner House books: Story, Song and Spirit is a collection of sensory-rich multigenerational worship services, and The Shared Pulpit is a small-group guide for laypeople to write and deliver their own sermons. Erika serves as the half-time contract minister of the Midcoast UU Fellowship in Damariscotta, Maine and has shaped her ministry around helping UU worship teams deepen their congregations' worship experience. In her devotion to creating and sharing innovative worship resources, Erika looks forward to serving as the new curator of WorshipWeb.

Though it not yet apparent, WorshipWeb has been undergoing a major transition. When the new is launched in spring 2015, WorshipWeb will have a very different look and feel.

  • Content will be tagged and searchable by theme, genre, season, occasion, UU Source, and UU Principle.
  • The number of resources will be much higher, as we’re integrating content from UUA books of prayers and meditations, special worship collections, Tapestry of Faith, and more.

WorshipWeb always welcomes submissions from worship leaders, whether they are religious professionals or creative UUs. We also particularly seek prayers, reflections, and rituals that can be used in small groups, or at home. Sending in your work is simple. It is a gift to UUs around the world.

With faith, hope, and love,
