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 provides music while Ronnie is away. Becky Strum is our worship associate. Joshin Byrnes is our Guest for All Ages, with an invitation to join the Breadloaf Mountain Zen Center in an interfaith quilting project. All access. Attend on site or online via Zoom.

Choose to attend worship and coffee hour online if you feel safer or are out of town via zoom clicking on https://zoom.us/my/cvuusservice. No live streaming on You Tube, but you can watch a recording of the service posted on You Tube and cvuus.org later following it and in next week’s Blast.
