Sunday Services

 Finding Our Souls

Before we can take care of souls, ours or anyone else’s, we need to ask ourselves whether “souls” exist, and if so, what they are. If we use the term, what do we mean by it? These are not easy questions for us as UU’s. But we are only the most recent generation to ponder these most basic questions.  ~ Rev. Terry Sims
