What is the Bible to Unitarian Universalists?

Bob Weekley from UU of Tappahannock

Sources of the UU living tradition include “wisdom from the world’s religions, and in particular, from Jewish and Christian teachings.” The Bible contains origins of these teachings and is the most widely read and influential book in the western world, yet the book has been a source of complexity and controversy. What is the Bible, actually?

Reflection on Grief and Faith: Roses in the Wind

Rob Zucker, Author & Grief Therapist

Some of us have faith in a higher power, while others hold a secular trust in a world determined by scientific knowledge tempered by human kindness. Or maybe a little of both–or something else entirely. Regardless, there are times when events are so earth-shattering that faith and/or belief are not enough to get us through. This talk examines how dark emotions (grief, fear, despair) that rise up during troubling times can be our greatest teachers.
