March 1 - Minister Peter Farriday
Prayerful practice can open our minds to greater conscious awareness, and thus increase our capacity for empathy and joy. It can fortify our hearts amidst pain and sorrow. Prayer can help us discern our deepest longings and how we might act on them. Rather than being an appeal to something outside of us, prayer links us with our deepest self, with one another, and with life’s miraculous presence.

We view creativity as something new which arises within us – that spark for a new thing previously unknown to us. By my thinking UUs should possess greater creativity than your average Joe because UUs are more open to new ideas and practices. In this sermon we will explore how our spiritual practice can promote and enhance our creativity.
