Mysticism has deep roots across religious traditions and at its best teaches us how to live in ways that help us focus on deep truths. The sermon will include messages from an 8th century Sufi mystic, Rabia, 12th century Christian mystic Hildegard of Bingen, and contemporary western Buddhist, Pema Chodron.
Margo Rinehart has recently earned her Masters in Divinity from Seattle University. She has attended the Kitsap UU Fellowship for over twenty years and recently completed a one-year UU Ministerial Internship at Westside UU Congregation in West Seattle. Finding current messages of compassion, integrity, and clarity in older texts is a passion of Margo’s. She tells us “as Unitarian Universalists, we are all called to be our best selves, a never ending process of discovery, discernment, and action.” Come and hear how the wisdom of mystics can help you on this path.
