The Heart of Religion: Love Beyond Belief


This companion sermon to “Deeper Than Our Separateness,” given on November 17, will explore the “heart of religion” – both its basis and goal – with the aid of Unitarian Universalist theologian Dr. Thandeka, who has recently published a book titled Love Beyond Belief: Finding the Access Point to Spirituality. NOTE: Near the end of the service you will be invited to briefly share a “mystical experience” with another person, that is, an experience in which, to a greater or lesser degree, you glimpsed a unity beyond the everyday push-and-pull world; or, to quote Joseph Campbell, a time when you experienced “a plane of consciousness where you could identify yourself with that which transcends pairs of opposites.” Celebrant: Jim Heard
