Rev. Scott Alexander said: “I used to laugh when someone told jokes about how laid back and lax we Unitarian Universalists are about our religion. But I’m not laughing anymore. I’ve stopped laughing because I realize how terribly important it is for me to take my religious life seriously. As I reach mid life (and approach my 50th birthday) I find myself increasingly compelled by life’s vast spiritual questions and pressing ethical demands. I’ve stopped laughing because I believe with all my heart and soul this troubled world desperately needs the compassionate and saving vision of Unitarian Universalism.”
This sermon will be read by Bonnie McFarland, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Riverside and Chair of the Worship Committee.
