Our Sermon coming up on Sunday.... spread the word! ...
Karma, without metaphysics - a sermon with Rev. Fa Jun
July 23, 2017, 10:30am - July 23, 2017, 1:30pm
The Law of Karma, the Golden Rule, Divine Balance. Most of the great Wisdom traditions of the world have some sense of sacred reciprocity as part of their teachings.
But is there a way that this old school understanding can apply to our modern lives?
Come and explore the notion of Karma through a modern rational lens. We'll see how the ancient Buddhist teachings on the nature of our minds match up quite nicely with modern psychological findings, and also explore sociological and environmental implications of individual actions.
Come to be re-empowered in your virtuous stance toward life, and learn the value of these time-tested ethical understandings!
As you may know, like most UU ministers, I am contracted to preach for our Fellowship for 10 months out of the year, with a 2 month break (usually during the summer). This year I have decided not to take any long stretches of time off without preaching, but I will be scaling back my level of other activities until September.
You may notice that I'm not leading any extra-curricular classes these two months, but I'll still have office hours available on Sundays if you need to talk. I'm also on hand if something important comes up.
Just a quick heads up in case you see a little less of me and wonder where the heck I went!
I hope you have the best summer ever, and I hope to see you on Sundays in the sanctuary with the AC on!

Christopher Real, thank you so much for leading a very helpful and insightful class on Ending the Debate at UUFLG last night. I feel very empowered this morning, because you gave us the tools to transform discord and division into harmony and healing. I'm very much looking forward to the next class!! ...
I have been shut out of my Desktop, my AOL email account, and my gmail account. So now the only way I can be contacted for important business is by phone, for which the number is in the Fellowship directory, or by snail mail. Also, I would be cautious about responding to ANY emails from me until further notice. Once again, I think I was fooled by a phishing expedition. This time, shame on me. ...
