Sunday, July 10, 2016: “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You”

Presenter: Mary McGinnis

Most of us have heard some form of “The Golden Rule” since we were children. “Treat others as you want to be treated” is a guiding philosophy in Christian communities and in our culture.

Maybe what is less known is just how global that philosophy is in other cultures and other religions.

The Golden Rule Project states: “The Golden Rule is inclusive of all different traditions, philosophies, and religions. Different versions or formulations of the Golden Rule can be found everywhere: in religious and secular texts, works of art, song lyrics and in the words of world leaders and more.”

Please join us as a member of our congregation shares a compilation of some of these formulations from the , Golden Rule Project and encourages personal reflection on how this may be present in daily living- rather than merely becoming empty rhetoric.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on these journeys. 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.

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