Reverend George Buchanan to speak to Unitarian Universalist

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua welcomes Consulting Minister George Buchanan to the pulpit on Sunday, June 9.

Buchanan’s sermon, “Our Moments of High Resolve” will explore the suggestion of some theologians that God is “that which transforms us as we cannot transform ourselves.” This unusual way of thinking and feeling about ultimate things might allow some new insights for us. We will explore this together. All are welcome to attend this service.

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. Please call 679-7944, visit www.uucnc.org or visit our page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/uucnc for more information.
