Our 6th UU source is not something far removed or designed only for others. We are, in many ways, all part pagan, and we should be proud of our "earth-centered traditions...and harmony with the rhythms of nature."
Rev. Hood acknowledges his debt to two sermons prepared in 2015 by Rev. Dr. J. Carl Gregg.
Our Sixth Source for the Wisdom that informs our Seven Principles is the natural world, the observable cycle of life – what is sometimes called Pagan or Earth-Centered religion. In the Ancient world, this was the realm of Superstition and Fear-based thought; in the Modern world, it is the realm of Science.
Where does “Love” fit in? Is love a scientific concept, a natural phenomenon? Or is it purely a Social construct,, a tool to sell cards, candy and flowers? If it is one of these, what does it have to do with Religion? Let’s talk about it.
Sunday February 9, 2020 "Another Dialogue on Traveling with Spirit" Rev. Pat Jobe and Rev. Travis Smith *Video and Audio*
Rev. Pat Jobe brings along another minister on the journey to new spiritual horizons. Rev. Travis Smith is a veteran minister in both the Baptist and Methodist traditions, but has found friends among UU's and hopes his visit with Jobe and Lowcountry will inspire us. They may even pull off another dialogue like we heard on January 19, but don't bet the farm. That dialogue set the bar pretty high.
