Sunday, July 12, 2015: “A Perfectly Imperfect Story”

Host: Karen Fothergill

Presenter: Julie Merrick

It has been said that in the end, we are all stories. But how do we tell our stories and how do we interpret the stories of those around us?

We are each dynamic and diverse and yet similar in so many ways. The Buddha once said that “to understand everything is to forgive everything.”

Perhaps the greatest value in sharing our stories is that doing so helps us to feel both compassion and appreciation for all stories, including our own.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Child care is available. Please join us Sunday at our new location located in the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West, at 10:30 AM. Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West. Please park in the rear of the building and use the entrance on the west side of the building.
