Gandhi’s Seven Social Sins – Gary Jackoway
Gary is a member of the Newark UU congregation and is a regular guest speaker at UUCD. This service deals with a list of Seven Social Sins, published, almost off-handedly in 1925 by Mahatma Gandhi. According to Gary, there is great wisdom in this short list. During this interactive service, we will discuss Gandhi’s list of “social sins” and its implications in the current world environment.
The Trinity for Unitarians – Dr. Len Bowman
Trinity is one of the more curious dogmas in the Christian tradition (one of our sources as UU’s) and has caused amazing (and amusing) confusion in and about that tradition. For all that, though, Trinity can point us into deeper appreciation of the dynamic quality and power of the interconnected web of all existence of which we are all a part, a dynamism we can touch in our ordinary consciousness and perceptions. Dr. Bowman has a Ph.D. in Theology from Fordham and has taught religion and theology for over 40 years.
