UU Adult Religious Exploration focuses on Buddhism

Sunday, Sept. 11, at 1 p.m., and on second Sundays of the month throughout the year, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will continue our Adult Religious Exploration.

The frame for the exploration is the Six Sources, which support the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism.  

The third source is  ”Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.”  

The topic for September will be Buddhism.

Buddhism is a philosophy that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices that are largely based on the teachings attributed to Disshartha Gautama.  He has come to be known as the Buddha, a Sanskrit term which means “the awakened one.”  He lived and taught in the northeastern Indian subcontinent around the 5th century BCE.

Throughout this year-long exploration we will learn about religious and spiritual traditions from around the world that have shaped the spiritual paths of many who also desire to explore Unitarian Universalism.   These religious explorations will be led by Religious Exploration Director Julie Loar, and there is a $10 suggested donation.  Everyone is welcome.  Participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch.
