Sunday Service Notes for Aug 25 – 11am sermon: Why Birds Matter

This Sunday, August 25 at 11am, we’re joined by guest speaker, Reverend Bob Murphy of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tarpon Springs.  He’ll be sharing some thoughts related to our 7th Principle :Respect for the Interdependent Web of All Existence of Which We are All a Part  .

“Birds and animals are important in many religions,” he notes. “Should the Unitarian Universalist Association change its principles to acknowledge the importance of “all beings””?

The General Assembly identified Rev. Bob as being the Unitarian Universalist version of Friar Tuck. He has recently been in Alaska. Rev. Bob is the part-time minister for the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tarpon Springs.
