Radically in Favor of Knowing

UU’s should welcome the upcoming launch into space of the James Webb telescope, which is designed to give humanity its deepest look by far into space and time. The leading edge of brain research amazes in a different realm. But no less a scientist than Albert Einstein said that “The only source of knowledge is experience.” Chuck Miller provided music. Joshin Byrnes was our Guest for All Ages, with an invitation to join the Breadloaf Mountain Zen Center in an interfaith quilting project.
