“In Search of a Guru”
Sam Treadaway, guest speaker
Unitarian Universalists do not recognize a singular scripture from on high. Nor do we acknowledge a solitary harbinger of divine providence. This unfettered faith places the responsibility on the individual seeker to find spiritual guidance and sacred wisdom. This is both a convenient gift – and, perhaps, an inconvenient burden. Let’s explore the notion, “How do we find our guru… where do we discover sage insight?” And during this annual time of commitment, “How does Piedmont support our individual and collective search?”
