10:00 am: “Creating a Conscious Majority” Traditional service with Rev. Jay Lang and Sunday Service Assistant Mary Lu Kennelly. Across this country and the world, there are many spiritual, social, environmental and political groups that are seeking to make a difference in how we treat each other and how we treat the Earth, including the UU’s here in Napa. How can we create networks of seemingly diverse people to establish a majority of ‘conscious’ individuals, that would have the power to do what is truly best for all of humanity?
Rev. Jay Lang moved to Napa from Colorado to be the Spiritual Director of the Center for Spiritual Living. He has an enthusiasm for life and a heart of compassion that shine through his speaking. His vision is to reveal oneness through community by letting go of our judgments and preconceived notions so that we can recognize the joy that is inherent in all life.
