April & May Theme – The Stages of Faith in the World’s Great Traditions
In the next few months when Rev. Fa Jun is leading services, we’ll explore the great religious traditions of the world and how they can manifest in various different “stages”. While a liberal Christian can be one of the kindest people on the planet, the same tradition also gave us the Inquisition. Buddhism is known for its compassion, and yet some people find ways to reconcile this teaching with terrorism. To explore these phenomena and more, we’ll utilize James Fowler’s research into the Stages of Faith, Spiral Dynamics and more to paint a vivid picture of the World’s Religions and how we relate with them.

“Learning from Our Losses, to Better Love Our World”|
April 22nd is Earth Day, and this is a difficult era for those who love our planetary Mom. What can we do to deal with recent setbacks to ecology and other humanitarian causes? Rev. Chris Schriner believes we can learn from our defeats and fight back skillfully against the forces of cynicism and greed.
Chris is Minister Emeritus of Mission Peak UU Congregation in Fremont. He is also a retired psychotherapist, and the author of six books including Do Think Twice: Provocative Reflections on Age-Old Questions.
For descriptions of more upcoming services, see our monthly newsletter Fellowship News. (Refer to the ‘Newsletter’ link on the right or under the Welcome menu.)
To make our world better, each of us must celebrate and share our unique gifts to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each of us. We find joy and meaning in such community. And by working together, we strengthen our connections.
Join us at a Sunday morning service at 10:30. Our children’s spiritual exploration classes also begin at 10:30. We have classes for nursery, elementary and middle school ages.|
We are a Welcoming Congregation, intentionally and openly taking steps to welcome into our community people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
