Albert Schweitzer, An Unlikely Unitarian
Guest Speaker: Arthur Aldrich
Albert Schweitzer, physician, philosopher, musician, Nobel Prize recipient and humanitarian came from a family of traditionally strict Lutheran ministers. Yet, early on he developed a sense of independent inquiry and action that put him at odds with his church. He also happily embraced membership in the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Larger Fellowship. We will follow the evolutionary process that enabled him to accept Unitarian principles that question dogma and doctrine while maintaining his core Lutheran theology.
About the speaker:
Arthur R. Aldrich has been a member of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland County since the 1970s, where he has served several terms as chair of the worship committee and chair of the board of trustees. He publishes a weekly newspaper in Pearl River New York, is a radio host and commentator and teaches at the Learning Collaborative of Rockland County. With him today is his wife of 50 years, Elaine.
LUUF's organic garden has wrapped up another season of supporting the Wayne Interfaith Network Food Pantry with donations of fresh produce. The offerings consisted of lettuce, kale, tomatoes and much more. One Monday's harvest, pictured below, shows LUUF's organic gardeners tending the beds, picking what's ready, and the weekly delivery to Herb Schuman, vice president and coordinator of the pantry, where it was distributed to appreciative clients later that day.
The Garden Committee can always use your help! If interested, please see Rose H., Pat K. or Steve K.
Our community welcomes you, and your family.
Join us every Sunday for provocative programs featuring music, meditation, fellowship and spiritual connection.
Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal tradition in which congregants are encouraged to find the commonality and truth in many religious teachings while fostering strong roots in community and service.
