This Sunday we will contemplate the practice of metta, a form of meditation that is grounded in loving kindness. Where did metta arise from, how has it spread worldwide and how can a simple mantra change our lives? Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty will share her thoughts about the place of metta and prayer in Unitarian Universalist life while asserting the importance of maintaining a practice as a way towards wisdom and compassion. Rev. Marjorie explains that, “Unitarian Universalists do not necessarily consider prayer, in the traditional sense, as part of our practice and yet we accept yoga, meditation, dance and song – all are forms of prayer; even imaging the world how we wish it could be is a form of hopeful prayer.” This will be a morning spent considering the ways that we honor the mystery of life and how we ask for guidance and help from the universe, the Spirit of Life and Love, along the way.
Breathe Out Love…
