Who We Are

We are a liberal religious community of people of all ages who hold diverse theological beliefs. We come not only from Harvard, but also from many surrounding towns. We gather together "in the spirit of love," to worship, to learn, and to care for one another. We come together both to be comforted and accepted for who we are, and to be challenged to transform and grow as moral and spiritual persons.

We believe in the value of personal experience and reason, and use both as we explore the wisdom of the world's religious traditions, seeking to find and make meaning for ourselves. We celebrate and honor the prophetic words and deeds of many of those who've come before us, which call us to serve not only one another, but also those outside of our community. We long for a world that is fair and just and filled with compassion, and we work to make it so.

We welcome you! We'd love to have you join us on our journey!

Rev. J. Mark Worth - “Younger Than Yesterday”
In 1964 Bob Dylan wrote a song called “My Back Pages.” It’s said that this song was a protest against his earlier protest songs! He had been so sure of himself as a younger man. He had seen the world in black and white, good and evil, them and us. As he began to mature more, he began to be less sure, less cocky, about the black and white picture some of his earlier songs had painted. As we grow and move beyond the past, how does religious faith change?
