This Week at BBUUC… December 9, 2012

This week at BBUUC….

December 9: Reverend Jack Ford will present: “Spirituality”

I live between two worlds. One of them is often referred to as ‘Spiritual’. The other could be possibly defined as ‘carnal’. I love both of them. My life consists of an exercise in balancing between the two, neither of which i can entirely define or understand. My life is dialogue. Thoreau said that he found in himself “an instinct toward a higher, spiritual life, and another toward a primitive and savage one, and i reverence them both. I love the wild not less than the good.” What is the connection between the spiritual and other aspects of our lives; emotional, physical, psychological? What does it mean to be ‘spiritual’?
