Mixing Metaphors

On Mother’s Day, Carol Flake considers the spiritual path she was set on by her mother and grandmother. Next, she explores a number of metaphors that have illuminated her spiritual journey from then until now. Unitarian Universalists believe that revelation is not sealed and that we each construct our own theology as it is revealed to us personally. In fact, one of our adult religious education programs is entitled “building your own theology”. This sermon invites you to travel with Carol as she builds her own theology through mixing the metaphors that have informed her spiritual journey.

This month's theme: Spiritual Pathways

Speaker: Carol Flake

Carole has been a member of UUTC for 18 years and has served in many roles. The one she is most pleased about is developing, promoting and supporting our small group ministries. She is a Distinguished Professor Emerita from the University of South Carolina, Columbia, where she taught developmental psychology and women’s studies. She has spent the years since her retirement in attempting to shed her professorial persona.

The first guiding Principle of Unitarian Universalism is the inherent worth and dignity of every person. UUTC welcomes all—persons of various ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, theological and political beliefs, socio-economic status, educational backgrounds, abilities and ethnicities. Services are at 9:15 and 11:00am. The building is wheelchair accessible, dress may be casual and visitors of all ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and beliefs are warmly welcomed.

Infant care is available during both services.

Join us for coffee between services at 10:30am
