Boston Marathon vigil draws hundreds, and other UUs in the media

Boston UUs remember bombing victims

Several hundred people gathered Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil at Boston’s Arlington Street Church, UU, to seek comfort and to remember those who were killed or injured in Monday’s terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon. (Charlestown Patch – 4.17.13)

The New Yorker has a beautiful and detailed account of the vigil at Arlington Street Church, which is located only a few blocks from where the explosions occurred. (4.17.13)

The Rev. Kim K. Crawford Harvie, senior minister of Arlington Street Church, said she realized almost immediately that a citywide service was necessary and urged people to “not give in to the root of terrorism.” (Boston Herald – 4.16.13)

The Rev. Peter Morales, president of the UUA, which is headquartered in Boston, wrote in a pastoral letter the day after the bombings: “At this time we do not know who did this or what twisted thinking produced this horrific act. We do know this: everything we do to spread compassion, understanding, acceptance, and peace matters.” (UUA.org – 4.16.13)

Life goes on

As a reminder that not all news was centered on Boston this week—even if it sometimes felt like it—the UU Parish of Monson, Mass., is holding a dedication ceremony after finally replacing a steeple that was destroyed during a 2011 tornado. (The Republican – 4.18.13)
