Taking a Soulfie

“Life is just a chance to grow a soul,” according to Unitarian Universalist minister A. Powell Davies. In this service we will draw inspiration from the Jewish High Holy Days and other sources as we reflect together on perspectives and practices for cultivating our soul. Of course, the word “soul” can seem problematic to some. Metaphors are helpful. Hasidic Jews call it the “spark of the Divine” in every human being. Buddhists call it the “Big Self.” Quakers call it the “Inner Light” or “Inner Teacher.” A contemporary writer and my friend, Parker Palmer calls it the “being in human being.”
