Nature: The Ultimate Mathematician 8/7

- Chuck Fowler
The systems we see around us, among us, and within us are intricately intertwined. Over time, one thing influences another. Such systems and relationships have a mathematical quality. But there is a caveat - a big caveat. Reality is ineffable and the universal language of mathematics fails to represent the infinite. However, nature's "mathematics" remains intact. Everything is an expression of reality.

A Brief Introduction to Unitarian Universalism 8/28

– Rev. Dan Lillie
Questions of meaning and purpose led me to Unitarian Universalism as a young adult, and finding this faith tradition led to even more questions! I am still learning about Unitarian Universalism, but I know more than I did 13 years ago when I entered my first UU church. Whether you have been a Unitarian Universalist your whole life or you are joining us for the first time, I hope I have something to offer you as I share a brief introduction to Unitarian Universalism.
