March 1st: “Wisdom of the Condor”

Presenter: Mary Beth Bolin (BUUF intern Minister)

In 2018 Intern Minister Mary Beth Bolin and her son went on a pilgrimage to see a California Condor flying freely in the wild. The spirit of that condor subsequently shepherded her into a time of liberation and healing that continues to unfold, and is bringing her back to her own roots of wisdom.

Mary Beth will reflect upon the sources of wisdom and healing to which we each have access, and how we can connect with our own roots in order to bring healing to ourselves and the world, while honoring the infinite variety of our paths.

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.

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.
