I Saw the Light
Offered by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz
"I saw the light..." can refer to a conversion, a moment of enlightenment or the hopeful waiting for daybreak. Regardless of the experience, "seeing the light" whether an intellectual truth, an emotional breakthrough or a spiritual change of heart is something that happens to human beings all the time. In honor of Buddha's enlightenment (Bodhi Day) and in recognition of the season of Advent, this service will explore when and how we "see the light."
This is New Member Sunday and the Free Spirit Band will be playing for this service. The Outreach Offering will go towards the UUA's "Join the Move" campaign to help make the transition to new headquarters in Boston, MA.
