April 18, 2021 – April 18 – Truth and Meaning after 2020, Gaye Symington

Posted by Tim on April 25, 2021

In November of 2020 Gaye led a service for the Mt. Mansfield UU Fellowship reflecting on political and social upheavals of the past four years and trying to come to terms with where UU principles offer guidance for navigating a path to seeing over the walls of division that are so prevalent in our world today. She’s updated those thoughts based on events since the election, but cautions that folks should not come to the service expecting clear answers or advice about the future. She looks forward to sharing her reflections and learning from the experiences and outlook of the Rutland congregation.

How can these last many months inform us going forward?
