September 23: Unitarian Universalism: A Radical Vision for 21st Century Religion
Alessandro Gagliardi, Guest Worship Leader
Unitarian Universalism is the merging of two streams—each considered heretical in their time—arising in response to New England Puritanism in the 18th century. Unitarianism and Universalism each represent breakthroughs in the “thinking” and “feeling” of religious experience respectively. Brought together in UUism, the progression of these two streams make for a radical vision for religion and ethics in the 21st century.
Alessandro Gagliardi is a Unitarian Universalist ministerial candidate and student at Starr King School for the Ministry. Prior to that, he pursued a PhD in Behavioral and Neural Science at Rutgers University. In his personal and ministerial practice, he works to combine the rational with the mystical and considers himself a student of the world’s religions.
 
September 30: The Gifts of the Crow
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles, Guest Worship Leader
The more we learn about other living creatures, the more we realize we are surrounded by and connected to intelligent beings who learn and feel and communicate as they cope with their existence. Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles tells the story of the crow and some of the questions their talents raise.
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles describes herself as a recovering psychologist and recovering attorney, who graduated from Starr King in 2011 and was ordained to UU ministry in 2013. Along with preaching at Bay Area churches as a guest speaker, she is active with the Rossmoor Interfaith Council and also writes poetry and short stories.
