Reading Sacred Scripture

October 2021 through May 2022
The first Sunday of each month
6-7pm EST 

Gather with Amy Wright Glenn, MA in Religion and Education from Teachers College, Columbia University to study eight sacred scriptures from around the world. Amy served as the Director of Religious Education at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton from 2018-2021. She is known for connecting intellectual rigor/honesty with a compassionate/empathic exploration of our world’s wisdom traditions.

Reading Sacred Scripture is offered without charge and is open to all.
Participants can join for the entire series or join for one class.
Donations to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton are encouraged.

***
Readings will reflect the wisdom from the Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Pagan, and Unitarian Universalist wisdom traditions. This course (outside of breakout rooms) will be recorded and made available to all via the UUFBR website and the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death’s website. Reading are made available during each session, so there is no “homework” to prepare. Simply show up and journey into reflection with us!

Hope is all brightness
as we gaze upon
the precipice
Not casting our eyes,
downward,
but filling our lungs eagerly
with the fresh air
of a new day,
our souls in winged orbit
outdistance the moon.
~ Sally Borden, UU poet
