​​No Mud, No Lotus



Sunday, January 29, 2023

10:30 am, live streamed online from the sanctuary

Rev. Catie Scudera preaching


Modern Buddhist teachers Thich Nhat Hanh and Pema Chödrön have written extensively on how to transform suffering into equanimity. Is it true that without mud, there can be no lotus? How can we wrestle with the reality of suffering and mindfully find joy in our day-to-day lives? We will honor International Holocaust Remembrance Day during this service, and launch our 2022 Pledge Drive Campaign: Keep on Moving Forward.
