Sacred Text Reading Group
Date(s) - 08/14/2021
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A weekly online sacred text reading group with Amy
Using a spiritual-practice approach, in each session we will explore a different brief scriptural text in depth. The aims of the sessions are educational (learning something about the texts and traditions), spiritual/moral (discovering what the texts ask of us), and community-building (getting to know each other better). Amy will have a version of the text available to share; “bring” your own if you like. All are welcome, as are your suggestions of future texts. About half our readings so far have been those suggested by group members.
Our text for Saturday, August 14, 2021, is from Rabbi Hillel, in the tractate of the Talmud called Pirkei Avot (Chapters of the Ancestors), 1:14.
If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
And if I am only for myself, what am I?
And if not now, when?
If you’re new (either to UUCPA or to the group) and would like to get acquainted, Amy and whichever group members can manage it will be there ten minutes early and will also stay afterwards–we’d love to have a little getting-to-know-you time.
