Doubting Our Doubts, by Rev Ed Brock

Oct 9, 2016   //   by Corey Shum   //    //  Comments Off on Doubting Our Doubts, by Rev Ed Brock

We are adept at doubting, particularly in regard to religion or spirituality. Have we considered, however, doubting our doubts? Perhaps it is time for us to stop allowing fundamentalists to control how we can define and understand spirituality, and develop our own understanding of those terms.

“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.” (Yann Martel)

Lessons on Community from the World of Sustainable Agriculture, by alice evans

Oct 2, 2016   //   by Corey Shum   //    //  Comments Off on Lessons on Community from the World of Sustainable Agriculture, by alice evans

alice evans will be speaking on the guidance that sustainable agriculture has to offer –  even the brown-thumbs among us – as a framework for understanding and nurturing strong, healthy communities.

Bio -alice evans was born and raised in Huntsville, and is not from a farming family, but perhaps has a country soul. Since early 2013 she has been the director of the Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network, a grassroots nonprofit network of small-scale sustainable farms and others who support clean local food in Alabama (more at asanonline.org). She is also involved in activism outside of her paid work, including movements for immigrant justice, racial justice, and queer liberation. She lives in Birmingham with her partner Lisa Moyer and their assortment of furbabies and plantbabies.

Gratitude as a Spiritual Practice, by Rev Ed Brock

Unitarian Universalists have let other religious groups take over the sphere of life we think of as religious or spiritual. We have turned this role of defining religion and spirituality over to people and groups that have turned religion into an arena for wanton prejudice, willful ignorance, spiritual malfeasance, political oppression, anti-science views, and anti-pluralistic drivel. Our failure to define ourselves more fully and carefully has given strength to the spread of religious barbarism.  Rather than curse the darkness, we need to light a lot of candles.

Does Birmingham need more UU’s?   Would more UU’s make a positive difference in our needy community?  How would growth here affect our own UU experience?  What does Unitarian Universalist evangelism (gulp!) look like?
