On Sundays in December we will look to and celebrate the world religions. 


Mawlid an-Nabi
Dec 3, 2017
Rev. Gordon Clay Bailey

The Prophet Muhammad is one of the most important figures the world has ever known.  Islam is currently the second most populous religion practiced.  The celebration of Mawlid an-Nabi is on December 1, which is the birth date for Muhammad.  Let us learn more about Islam.  Let us open ourselves to understanding. Let us grow our souls so to speak as  we look to the wisdom of the peoples of the world.


Bodhi Day

Rev Gordon Clay Bailey

 

Buddhism is generally thought of as the fourth largest religion in the world.  The celebration of Bodhi Day is the time for acknowledging the day when Siddhartha Gautama sat under the Bodhi tree and attained enlightenment.  Join us at UU Verdugo as we explore this important event and embrace a faith that has touched our own faith tradition in a powerful way.
