The Spark Within

Service Description:

Where does our center, our very core, live? Does it reside in the chambers of our heart? In our brain? In our middle, and that is why gut feelings can be so spot-on? In this service, we’ll ponder the mystery of what makes us us, and how our Unitarian Universalist faith can help us be more of who we are. Along the way, we’ll all take part in a little magic and draw a lesson from laser physics
