Earth-centered traditions at UUC

In 1995, the Unitarian Universalist Association formally recognized the importance of the religious wisdom of human beings who live in close harmony with the earth: indigenous peoples, pagan and neo-pagan groups, and others who find their primary source of spiritual inspiration to be the physical universe.

Rev. Kit Ketcham will speak to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island about how this source has contributed to Unitarian Universalism’s strength and diversity at the service on Sunday, April 6.

The Sunday service for the Unitarian Universalist Church is at 4 p.m. in the chapel at Trinity Lutheran Church, Woodard and Highway 525, Freeland.

Children ages 3 through 10 are warmly welcomed and engaged in the holistic “Spirit Play” methodology (see in the church’s religious education courses. This week’s story is “Hide and Seek with God.”
