This Sunday: “Humor and Tenacity as Tools for Overcoming”

The Rev. Pat Jobe of Greenville, S.C., describes himself as “a minister, a teacher, a writer, a listener, and a human being.”

Rev. Pat Jobe

Rev. Jobe also is a Unitarian Universalist and an activist for social justice, who keeps his cool in turbulent times. This promises to be a useful talk, and visitors are always welcome.

Members of our Fellowship don’t share a creed. We’re a community of Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Wiccans, humanists  and others, including atheists and agnostics. (Yes atheists and agnostics can have rich spiritual lives.) Rather than demand adherence to dogma, we support each other in our own unique searches for truth and meaning. That doesn’t mean we don’t believe in anything. We support and promote the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, which emphasize respect for each other and for our planet.

Sound interesting? The best way to learn more is to attend the Sunday morning service. Here’s our Sunday schedule:

  • 9:15 a.m. to noon. Free childcare available.
  • 9:15 a.m. Adult Religious Education. We explore all the world’s great religious and philosophical traditions in an informal setting. This Sunday’s topic is Catholicism in China.
  • 9:15 a.m. Children’s religious education. Kids also learn about the world’s great religions and about respecting each other and the planet.
  • 10:15 a.m. Coffee and conversation before the service.
  • 10:45 a.m. The Sunday service. The centerpiece is a talk, often by a guest speaker like Rev. Jobe. Services also include music, meditations and opportunities—always optional—to share your own thoughts or ask questions.
