The Limits of Science
Rev. Fa Jun, UUFLG Minister
(preceded by a Morning Meditation, 9:30 AM – 10:00 AM)
Advancing science has been responsible for some of the greatest gains we have made as a world culture in the last many years. As good liberals, we should put our faith in the power of science and clear thinking to help us make the world a better place. Sadly, the more we put our faith in something, the more likely it is to behave like a religion!
What are the limits of science? Join us for a scientific exploration of what we can know through the laboratory, what we must know through the heart, and how to reconcile them.
July Theme: ‘The Light of Love and Wisdom’
During the brightest days of the year, all things are illuminated and brought to fruition. In many ways, we are living in the brightest days of human history. We have come to know more about ourselves and our world than our ancestors ever hoped to know, and we just keep on growing. We can revel in the power we currently possess to cut through gordian knots that have plagued our world for millennia, and perhaps even create the possibility of peace and plenty for all. But to do this, we must learn to skillfully wield the sword of wisdom – lest, being untrained, we cut ourselves with our newfound power.
Wisdom must be balanced with love. We hear a call from within to align the voices of the heart, and those of the head. Then, truly, our lives can shine, illuminate, and bring forth great abundance!

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE WHAT WE CAN DO TOGETHER!
To change our world for the better, it will take each of us celebrating and sharing our unique gifts to discover new ways to nurture our planet. As a crucible of curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide a very open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength and wisdom found within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each person. There is meaning and joy to discover in this type of religious community. And by working together in partnership we help strengthen our interconnected web of existence.
We look forward to talking to you further about your own spiritual path and how we can support each other. Begin by joining us at a Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 AM in our Sanctuary. Our children’s spiritual development classes also begin at 10:30. We have classes for nursery, elementary, and middle school ages.
