Gentleness Meets the Law of the Jungle – In-Person and Virtual Worship-Rev. Chris Buice

The Buddha taught that we should have compassion for all sentient beings including those creatures that are hostile to human life. Indigenous people of this continent teach that we should have reverence for all life, the two legged, the four legged, the feathered, the furry and the finned. This Sunday we will explore how to be more gentle even when we are in the midst of the law of the jungle.

(You can watch our worship service streamed at 11 am on our Facebook page https://tinyurl.com/yfx9pnx6, or our website https://tvuuc.org/ and also on our YouTube channel https://tinyurl.com/ycksxc98.)
