Living together while practicing our principles requires quite a juggling of values, feelings, ideas, egos, and intentions. Mutual respect is a pretty important ingredient in successfully engage in relationships. Let's explore what that might look like.
The complete sermon (including other service words) can be read below:
Integrating respect into our internal and external relations is a life-long process of lessons and learning. Today we will hear about how one small creature taught an entire family much about respect.
Larry Gillman will be sharing his personal experiences working to support others in need. He will reflect on his 15 years as President of Beth Israel Synagogue in Peterborough, and sharing space with the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough. Last year with the support of Julie they opened their doors to the Peterborough Mosque after the horrific act of arson. He will also reflect on his December visit to Karanda Mission Hospital in Zimbabwe, an impoverished rural facility.
As we embark upon a month of exploring the spiritual dimensions of respect, this Sunday we will begin by considering insights from various well-known individuals about the concept of respect as it relates to self and to others.
