Unitarian Universalist welcomes guest speakers Kelley Braheney and Sarah Eaton

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua welcomes guest speakers Kelley Braheney and Sarah Eaton to the pulpit on Sunday, April 28. Braheney and Eaton are earth-centered pagans and previous members of the UU congregation before their move to Binghamton. They both practice a spirituality that draws heavily on Buddhist Lovingkindness work, mindfulness, and compassion.

Their talk, “A Way to Wholeness,” will explore the themes of multiplicity, wellness, community, and then of wholeness from the perspective of Lovingkindness.

Immediately following the service, we will share food and companionship with a finger food potluck. Please bring something to share that does not need utensils to be served or eaten, and your own place settings.

Had a busy morning rushing to church and forgot your table settings? Left the dish to pass in the fridge? No worries, we do have paper goods and there will be plenty of food. Join us!

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua is a liberal religious community devoted to promoting individual spiritual development, working toward peace, liberty and justice in our immediate and global communities, and providing companionship on life’s sacred journey. Our worship services are held each Sunday at 11 a.m. in the Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St. Fredonia.
