BACK TO JUNIOR HIGH

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
Oncology chaplain and popular guest speaker, Michael Eselun will share some deeply personal reflections about junior high school– a pivotal and often painful time that leaves indelible memories for many of us. In dialogue with some of those 13- year old’s perceptions, what might be discovered about inherent worth, dignity, and compassion?

No Justice, No Peace!

We are used to hearing this chant of protest– as a demand for justice. Pursuit of justice is a core UU Principle, and yet we’ve also heard since childhood that “no one said life is fair.” When such injustice hits closer to home—like say, a diagnosis of cancer, how do we find peace when there seems to be no justice? UCLA oncology chaplain, Michael Eselun, will explore this territory.

Perfect Strangers

Popular guest speaker and UCLA Oncology Chaplain, Michael Eselun will explore our relationship to strangers. We are often told from a young age, “Don’t talk to strangers,” only to find that sometimes such encounters might be “perfect.”

Pilgrimage

Popular guest speaker and UCLA Oncology Chaplain, Michael Eselun will explore the idea of pilgrimage– our pursuit of inspiration and enlightenment. Internal journeys and external ones—and some in between.
