SUN­DAY, JAN. 14

➤ UUBRIDGE SER­VICE: Uni­tar­ian Univer­sal­ists of the Blue Ridge ser­vices at Hearth­stone School (11576 Lee Hwy, Sper­ryville) at 10:30 a.m. with a talk on “Tran­scen­dence,” by Frank Dixon. We all in­herit a world­view by be­ing born into a fam­ily and a neigh­bor­hood. There is no guar­an­tee that our in­her­i­tance is a good one. We know it is pos­si­ble to tran­scend our be­liefs, be­come fun­da­men­tally dif­fer­ent, so to speak; but we also know that it is ex­tremely dif­fi­cult. In this talk Dixon ex­am­ines the men­tal pro­cesses in­volved, and suggest that by un­der­stand­ing those pro­cesses tran­scen­dence will be made more eas­ily achieved. All are welcome.
