July 19 - Reenchantment
Laura VondenheuvelFrom Fellowship member Laura Vondenhuevel:
We live in a modern society that, for the most part, is rational and scientific-based. Our analytical selves read books and research articles or talk with others to determine what is the best way to be the best self or how we should live our lives.
But what happens when the books and the talking isn't enough for some individuals? One can experience a lack of something in life but are unsure of how to fill the void, especially when the void doesn't have a concrete definition. What are some ways we can step back from the mundane world and reconnect with the spirit or divine?
As Unitarian Universalists we acknowledge six diverse sources for inspiration for our living tradition. This Sunday, I hope we can experience--together--some ways to re-enchant our lives from these diverse sources.
