September 24: The Balm of Gilead

Where do we find healing? Where do we go to be comforted, blessed, restored? In biblical times, there was a high-quality ointment called the balm of Gilead. It had healing properties and the term became a metaphor for a universal cure grounded in spirituality.

Beautiful hymns, prayers and teachings reflect this idea and call us to open our hearts to love and be made whole.

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 oppresses in society and the world.

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 our spiritual 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.

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is usually available.
