From Special Creation to Kin: How Scientific and Indigenous Understandings Call Us to a New Relationship with Nature



Sunday, February 5, 2023

10:30am, live streamed online and from the sanctuary

Guest Minister Rev. Jamie Hinson-Rieger preaching


For much of Western history the dominant creation story has placed humans at the apex of the natural order. This Sunday we will look at how the scientific creation story calls us to a different relationship with life, one which is consonant with many indigenous understandings and with Unitarian Universalism as well. And we will say “Happy birthday!” to Charles Darwin, one week early.
