August 25: “Empathy as a Superpower”

Presented by: Rev. Jenny Peek

JennyP_180pHow is empathy developed? What are its challenges and benefits? In a time when ideologies are polarizing neighbors and family members leaning into the discomfort with curiosity and loving concern seems counter-intuitive. What if empathy (and let’s add some love and compassion for good measure) were our greatest superpower? Join us Sunday as our visiting minister, Rev. Jenny Peek, shares her reflection on empathy in the least possible places.

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. As Unitarian-Universalists, we 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 working on becoming handicapped-accessible but are not fully there yet. To avoid steps into the sanctuary please enter through the rear entrance to access a sloping hallway to the sanctuary. Please park in the rear of the building or on the street, in front or the side of the building. Child care is available during the adult portion of the service.
