As Unitarian Universalists, many of us have a complex and perhaps difficult relationship with Christianity, and yet it too is one of our sources of wisdom. Perhaps if we dig more deeply into its origins, we may discover a new perspective that helps us navigate these difficult waters. This service will take a new look at some of the wisdom teachings from the New Testament as translated directly from the Aramaic language based on ancient, Aramaic texts from Syria, and from the Dead Sea Scrolls.

How might we journey into the depths of our materiality—the fleshiness of our lived reality—through the five senses? How do our senses inspire our connections with one another? With the natural world?
