Remembering: A Time of Reflection
AJ Blackwood, Ministerial Intern

Our hope as Unitarian Universalists that will continuously strive to be on the right side of justice and voices for the oppressed. We know that with any struggle for the overturn oppression there will be casualties. During our service this week, we will be taking time to reflect on those we have lost to war, and in other battles for justice. Please join us this Memorial Day weekend for a time of reflection and meditation on the lives that have been lost in the struggle for justice.

Zen Buddhism, Unitarian Universalism, and Finding a Life that Matters
Rev. James Ishmael Ford, guest minister

Our pulpit guest, the Zen priest and Unitarian Universalist minister James Ishmael Ford claims a “physiology of faith.” He says he has a Buddhist mind, a Christian heart, and a rationalist and humanist stomach. Today we can see what that might mean.
The Reverend James Ishmael Ford is minister-emeritus of the First Unitarian Church in Providence as well as a prominent Zen Buddhist priest. He currently serves as a community minister affiliated with the UU Church in Long Beach as well as guiding the Blue Cliff Zen community that meets at the Long Beach church and the Orange Coast UU Church in Costa Mesa. His most recent book is “If You’re Lucky, Your Heart Will Break.”
