Who We Most Are
“We are fragile creatures, and it is from this weakness, not despite it, that we discover the possibility of true joy.” (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
The Tears from the Eyes of Another
Teddy Bear Sunday
“It probably takes many years of monastic practice to equal the spiritual growth generated by one sleepless night with a sick child.” (from The Book of Joy by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams)
Bring a new or clean, gently used teddy bear or other stuffed animal for our annual intergenerational Teddy Bear Sunday. Our holiday menagerie will be given to Project REST and the City of Spartanburg Public Safety for children separated from their families. Share warmth; share love.
December Service Theme
“Let me ask you,” the Archbishop [Desmond Tutu] jumped in. “You’ve been in exile…. fifty-six years from a country you love more than anything else. Why are you not morose?”….
[The Dalai Lama answered,] “There’s a Tibetan saying: ‘Wherever you have friends that’s your country, and wherever you receive love, that’s your home….’”
“’That’s very beautiful,’ the Archbishop said.” (from The Book of Joy by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams)
Exploration of Faiths: Unitarian Universalists
Gratitude to the Spartanburg County Public Library and especially to Gwen Murtha for the opportunity to share about the Unitarian Universalist movement and our congregation in their Virtual Exploration of Faiths series.
Thank you to every person, whether part of our congregation or not, who makes this world more and more one in which we are Free To Love.
