Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum
Writer E.B. White once said, “I arise in the morning torn between the desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” How do find balance in our lives? Rev. Cindy will talk about the balancing acts we face every day.
I was in my 40's, a young widow, children had moved on with their lives, I had a fulfilling teaching career and a wonderful group of friends. I began to feel, however, that I was missing something, hard to define really, but came to understand was spiritual camaraderie. I thought a Unitarian church might be a good fit as my Christian viewpoint I had been brought up with had shifted considerably. I thought I would drive to Ann Arbor to attend but bumped into a former student who mentioned she was a member of a Unitarian Universalist church right here in Jackson County. I went there the next Sunday and was pleased and overwhelmed with the spiritual camaraderie I sought. That was eighteen years ago. It has enriched my life.
