In honor of Yom Kippur, a time of reconciliation in the Jewish tradition, Reverend Nate will cast a vision for our progressive religious movement where each time a Unitarian Universalists enters a room others will exhale and say, “Oh, good, the UUs have arrived.” Is that a probable scenario for our participation in Town Hall meetings and social justice rallies? Imagine if Unitarian Universalists wholly embraced the spiritual practice of kindness and, like Buddhists and Quakers, become widely known for their compassion. Is such a vision idealistic or realistic?
Note: During this service our Director of Religious Education, will lead a Lesson for All Ages, followed by the Lifespan RE program for leaders of the children, youth, young adult, and adult religious education programs in Griffin Hall at 12:30 pm. At 2:00 pm Jen Hayman and her band will lead a Rock@1stU worship service in the Parish Room.
