Touchstones with Rev. Mary Grigolia

TouchstonesOct 5 – Touchstones: What are your deep experiences of being part of something larger than your individual self that also lifts and celebrates who you are? Perhaps hidden touchstones that support your faith in Life. We explore the 1st source of Unitarian Universalism: Direct experience of transcendence that affirms that all is one. Service led by Rev. Mary at 10:30 am.

Workshop: What are YOUR personal stories, your touchstones? What experiences gift you with faith in life? What touchstones will you share? We’ll listen to each other’s stories. And explore what they have in common and how they differ… And what it has to do with UU’ism.  Join us after the service for a finger-food potluck and this insightful workshop.

“Beyond the Wilderness: A Reexamination of Exodus 3”

The story of Moses’ encounter with God in the burning bush is considered to be one of the most sacred texts of the Hebrew scriptures. While the name of God is announced, it is also an exposition of the relationship between a man’s inward journey and a response to a community’s plea for justice.
