Sermon Series: “Quests of the Spirit”
Quests of the Spirit celebrates Unitarian Universalism’s distinctive style of openness to many sources of wisdom. It’s meant to encourage individuals in their personal spiritual quests and to enrich those quests with wisdom from the world’s religions.
Sunday, February 19: “Rivalry to Inclusion” (Rev. Jonathan Rogers)
Some paths divide; others unite. What’s the difference?
Sunday, February 26: “Embodied Spirituality” (Rev. Anthony Makar)
How do we include ALL of who we are—mind and body—in our quests of the spirit?
Sunday, March 5: “WHERE is Spirituality?” (Rev. Anthony Makar)
At UUCA, often our Embracing Meditation time concludes with the phrase, “Amen, Ashe, Blessed Be.” But would our worship be less “spiritual” without them? What if we stopped lighting the chalice, singing hymns, hearing a sermon, and doing the rest of what we do? Not what, but WHERE is spirituality?
Sunday, March 12: “What I Love About Islam” (Rev. Dr. M’ellen Kennedy)
The tension and misunderstandings between the Islam and the West are dangerous and costly. This sermon is an effort to bridge that gap of misunderstanding. What may be intriguing about Islam for religious liberals? Join us for an opportunity to open our hearts and minds to what valuable life lessons we can gain from this powerful and inspiring religious tradition.
