Risk is not only our theme in March, but is also highlighted on the cover our monthly "Soul Matters" packet. In our super hero styled culture, we think of risk in both individual and polorized terms -- either exhilarating or terrifying. What does it mean to be a community of risk? What do religion and risk have to do with each other? What's right for me?
For something a little different, Rev. Antonia and Music Director, Virlene Arnold and the choir team up to bring you a selection of significant songs in our Unitarian Universalist history and theology. Come, sing a song with us!
Guest Speaker: Richard Groves
The walls of many formal religious institutions in the West seem to be crumbling. We are too close to this event to see clearly what is emerging to take their place. However, there are clear indications that, as the American mystic Thomas Merton predicted, "Religion of the future will be mystical or won't be at all." In this talk, world religions professor Richard Groves helps us to consider three key elements that define the emerging spiritual-mystical phenomenon of our times: 1) A Return to Nature, 2) The Cry for Compassionate Justice and 3) Listening to the Wisdom of the Unconscious. The results will encourage, challenge and inspire you.
Speaker: Rev. Antonia Won
Knowing who we are is a dialogue we have with ourselves as we travel through life, occasionally circling back to memories and values that anchor us in the present. What gives us strength? What keeps inspiring us? What is revealed in our stories?
