    10 AM Kissing the Pope's Ring- Rev. Jim

    Kissing the Pope's Ring- Rev. Jim
    10 AM - 11 AM

    • Date: October 3, 2021

    Perhaps the greatest sign of covenant with the Roman Catholic Church is the act of kissing the Pope's ring. It is supposed to be an outward symbol of a deeply felt covenant, yet history has shown that hasn't always been the case. Although Unitarian Universalists don't usually kiss rings, we do covenant to support each other on our spiritual and life journeys. May the act of renewing OUR covenant always be deeply felt and sacred. Meeting ID: 933 7504 2962 Passcode: 258921 Religious Ed: The meaning of circle time - the chalice and sharing with one another

    How Mindfulness Can Heal the World by Robert Wright https://www.amazon.com/How-Mindfulness-Can-Heal-World/dp/B08DZV871Z Open Circle Fellowship member, Karen Schuppe, highly recommends the works of Robert Wright, an American journalist and author who writes about science, history, politics, and religion. This discussion is a companion to Rev. Jim’s sermon on October 10th. Please listen to the audiobook https://www.amazon.com/How-Mindfulness-Can-Heal-World/dp/B08DZV871Z and join the virtual discussion. (From Amazon): With How Mindfulness Can Heal the World, Wright presents a deeply informative and practical audio workshop filled with insights and guided practices to help us evolve beyond tribal thinking, including: • What drives tribalism? The underlying psychology and evolution of “us and them.” • How mindfulness addresses the roots of tribalism and helps us see ourselves and the world clearly. • Overcoming confirmation bias, cultivating objectivity, practicing empathy and compassion, and much more.

    10 AM Toxic Talk by Michael Schuler

    Toxic Talk by Michael Schuler
    10 AM - 11 AM

    • Date: October 24, 2021

    People in our society have adopted bad habits of speech, leading to a tattering of our social fabric and both an inability and an unwillingness to engage with those outside of a pre-selected and safe circle. Building relationships begins, I think, with what Buddhism's Noble Eightfold Path calls "Right Speech." What might that look like today, and are there strategies we can employ to increase the chances of establishing meaningful connections across the ideological divide? https://tinyurl.com/aj26sjks Meeting ID: 976 3326 9618 Passcode: 159782
