A human being is a part of the whole called by us "universe",
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences her/himself, her/his thoughts and feeling
as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his/her consciousness....
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
- Albert Einstein (adapted)
Where do you touch that inner and outer connectivity
and compassion? What is your experience when you live
into a deeper connection within yourself,
with the tree outside the window, with the
blooming on your table?
"Omnia vivunt, omnia inter se conexa"
Everything is alive; everything is interconnected.

10:30 AM: "Our Seventh Principle - Respect for the interdependent web of all existence"
"Our seventh Principle may be our Unitarian Universalist way of coming to fully embrace something greater than ourselves. The interdependent web - expressed as the spirit of life, the ground of all being, the oneness of all existence, the community-forming power, the process of life, the creative force, even God - can help us develop that social understanding of ourselves that we and our culture so desperately need. It is a source of meaning to which we can dedicate our lives." Rev. Forrest Gilmore
Join us in an exploration of the common thread weaving through all of life.
