October 2: Beloved Fellowship: Ethics in a Spiritual Community
Jennifer Lisa Vest (she/her)
Kathy Riehle (she/her), Coordinator
Religious traditions from around the world agree that we eventually need to take what we do in private and in our congregations and bring it out into the rest of our lives—in our relationships with our family members, in our workplaces, in our interactions with strangers. Our UUA Tapestry of Faith: Spirit in Practice series continues with the seventh of eight Spheres of spiritual practice: “Life Practices.” Coordinated by Kathy Riehle, BFUU Board President.
Pastor Jojo V. Gabuya (they/them)
**IN PERSON Service, BFUU Fellowship Hall, 1924 Cedar Street**
What gives us a sense of awe and wonder and interconnects us with All Beings? What do we want to let go of, to recover who we truly are? What would help us create strength and wisdom for ourselves and others in this Fellowship? Let's share our stories and our dreams. Pastor Jojo V. Gabuya is a proud non-binary transgender, Filipinx, interfaith pastor, and an ordained minister in the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples founded by Howard Thurman.
Rev. Dr. Caroline Knowles (she/her)
It’s time to bless the animals. Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles describes how Earth teems with sights, sounds, textures, vibrations—and smells, tastes, electric and magnetic fields. Yet we each live within a small unique sensory bubble—just a sliver of this world. Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles graduated from the Starr King seminary in 2011 and retired from UU ministry in 2016. Along with providing pastoral care at BFUU and preaching at Bay Area churches as a guest speaker, she writes poetry, short stories, and is working on a memoir.
Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb (she/her)
Storytelling can help us explore grief, love, and unfinished dreams. Lynn Gottlieb is Rabbi Emerita of the Congregation Nahalat Shalom in Albuquerque, NM. Now a resident of Berkeley, CA, Rabbi Lynn engages in multifaith, intergenerational and multicultural organizing in solidarity with racial, indigenous, gender justice and Palestinian liberation struggles as she teaches joyful spirituality, storytelling, ceremony, and ritual arts.
