All Souls Church, 196 Elm St, Braintree

Have you ever listened to NPR's the Moth? This event is like this, only it's live and you get to participate! Six story tellers will share a tale describing a turning point in their life. The audience participates by collectively voting on the stories (it's really fun!). If you've ever been to a poetry slam, it's like that - only with stories. Our MC for the evening will be the multi-talented Rev. Steve Wilson. Our own Rev. Rebecca Froom will be one of the storytellers.
Get to know a few people a little better, makes some new friends and have an all around good time - all while supporting UU MA Action! What could be better?
Tickets are $30 each or $25 each when two or more are purchased - bring a friend! Light refreshments will be available. Don't delay - tickets move fast! You can buy tickets at

Seven Principles...


  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.


These principles are the backbone of our religious community.
