What's UUp on Sunday, February 26, 2017?

Celebration of Life 11:00 am

“Generosity of Spirit”

Speaker: Linette Lowe

Linette Lowe will speak to what it means to cultivate generosity of spirit. You may remember Scrooge’s character from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Scrooge was a miserly, miserable person only concerned with extracting the most from his employees to benefit his business. But after the “intervention” provided by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, Scrooge awoke a changed man. He saw every person he encountered as an opportunity to practice generosity – he embodied generosity of spirit. We’ll explore what this means and how we, too, might enjoy such an awakening.
