Service for July 8, 2012
July 8 – 10:00am
Rev. Dr. Maureen Killoran
"The Spirituality of Going Without"
Beginning July 20, over 2 million Americans will, for one month, fast during the daylight hours. Along with a billion other Muslims worldwide, they will be observing the Islamic holy festival of Ramadan. When that many people are doing something that intensive, Maureen believes it's worth looking at, to see what we might learn. In the words of one young American Muslim, "Ramadan is about being conscious, aware of the unjust realities that surround us, as well as the beautiful gifts that are shared with us every day." Rather than a lecture in comparative religion, Maureen's sermon will explore what we, as contemporary UUs, might learn from the ancient customs. Who knows, maybe something you hear this morning may even change your life?
Rev. Dr. Maureen Killoran holds Master’s degrees in family sociology and ministry, and a doctorate in church organizational systems. An accredited interim minister, Maureen has served as parish minister in Oregon and North Carolina, and as an interim minister in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Florida and Bethesda, MD. In August, she will begin her next placement as interim senior minister at Eliot Unitarian Chapel in St. Louis. She and her husband, Peter Hyatt, have a home in Hendersonville, and are pleased to be on our books as "friends" of the congregation.
The service will be held at Agudas Israel Synogogue
