Join us this Sunday:
"The Spiritual Practice of Being an Ally"
with Dr. David Campt and David Irwin
Sunday, February 18 9:30 and 11:15 am
Almost all spiritual traditions suggest we treat others as we would like to be treated, and people in circumstances of oppression need others to be active allies in their struggle for freedom. But being an ally in a way that's respectful and loving to all concerned - ourselves, victims, perpetrators, and bystanders - is not always straightforward. The good news is that the path of being an ally pushes us to make choices that are good not just for the world and our karma, but also for our own spiritual development.
February's Theme: Perseverance
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver (UUCV) is an energetic, growing congregation of over 250 members. We welcome all people to our liberal community, where we draw spiritual meaning from a variety of religious traditions, as well as social justice, humanitarian, and environmental causes. As such, UUs have a diversity of beliefs, and may consider themselves humanists, atheists, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, pagan, mystics, spiritual, or nothing at all, but we are committed to common values. Our Principles and Sources articulate these values, which are nicely summed up in our Children's Affirmation: "Love your neighbor as yourself; search for truth with an open mind; make the world a better place. "
