Faith as a Verb

Unity Church-Unitarian, Portland Ave, 733 Portland Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55104 United States
+ Google Map
free but rsvp required.

In the early Buddhist, Jewish and Christian texts, faith is not a noun but a verb. It is a way that we live, a leap that we take. In the Pali language of the original Buddhist texts, it meant literally “to place the heart upon.” This writing session offers an exploration of faith as something we do. How and where do we offer our hearts? And what does it mean when we do? Free but RSVP by email requested.
