This Sunday: Native American Stories and Symbols (a Personal Theology)

Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources, one of which bespeaks a Native American ethos: “Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions…celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.” Native American spirituality is as diverse as its many tribes. There are common threads, however, woven throughout these spiritual perspectives: living in balance with nature and communicating beliefs, dreams, and reality using symbols. Penni Haskins will discuss how honoring Native American spirituality reflects a core UU principle — the respectful search for knowledge and personal meaning. Lay Leader – Mary Ann Borchert, Presenter – Penni Haskins, Music – Vera Alexander.
