As we approach Earth Day 2012, let us reexamine the age old questions, “What is my reason for being? What is the meaning of life?”, as a way to reinvigorate our connection to Mother Earth.
Also, in honor of Earth Day, we will not be using disposable cups for refreshments after the service. Please bring your own mug.
Our service begins at 11 a.m. in the Lodge at Woodlawn School, just north of Davidson. Find us.

- Religious Exploration for adults, 9:45 a.m. Introducing Dr. Thandeka’s theology of personal experience: Rev. Dr. Thandeka is cited as one of our most influential contemporary Unitarian Universalist theologians. She is the author of two books and numerous articles, and a contributor to major theological publications.Thandeka believes we Unitarian Universalists know what moves us as religious people: personal experience. But she sees us stumbling when we try to articulate our own theology of personal experience. So Thandeka says we have to start with the basic elements of personal experience for us as Unitarian Universalists. We will examine these elements in detail.
