I Think…Therefore I am Deluded

According to the ancient Indian sage Patanjali, in its most basic sense, yoga is the “cessation of the turning of thought.” Yet, modern western philosophy is said to start with Descartes who uttered his famous phrase “I think, therefore I am.” Well…what are we to make of this?

The Church of the Mulligan

A “Mulligan” in golf is a do-over. It’s your chance to, without penalty, try again when your shot goes into the next fairway, into an unforgiving patch of poison ivy, etc. This is a very good rule. How can we apply this to our work at UUMAN?

Alexa, What’s the Meaning of Life? (A Reprise!)

If you ask Alexa, “What’s the meaning of life?” she’ll give you an answer. How is that answer informed? Who is at the wheel? What are the ethics and morality in play? Could there be an agenda?

Lay Led Service: What is Unitarian Universalism?

What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist? This question gets asked a lot, by newcomers and long-time UUs alike! As UUs, we encourage each other’s spiritual development as we search for truth and meaning. Our lay leader this week, Amanda Bralley, will share what being UU means to her, and some of our members will share their thoughts, too, so come join us on YouTube as we explore what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist.

The Slippery Slope

During some type of argument or discussion, we’ve all likely heard someone invoke “the slippery slope.” (I’ve done it myself!)… but thinking more deeply, just what does it mean? Do slippery slopes truly exist? Are they ubiquitous? And most importantly, what do they signify for us and our community?

Parables and Portraits

Come experience the wisdom and humor of several stories from the book “Parables and Portraits” by Stephen Mitchell. Come, let us tell you a story.

It’s a Wonderful Church

In the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” the angel Clarence tries to “earn his wings” by showing George Bailey, the character played by Jimmy Stewart, what the world would look like had he not been born. What might the world look like without UUMAN?
