God is the Fact That…Living to Die – An exploration of mortality and faith through poetry and personal reflection.

Fri 4 PM | Workshop

Rev. Adam Lawrence Dyer

Human beings have always been trying to understand what it means to be alive. As creatures with an awareness of our own mortality, we wrestle, often through various religious expressions with the ideas of birth, death and the afterlife. But what does this mean in a world that is increasingly multi-cultural and multi-religious?Rev. Adam Lawrence Dyer shares creative insights into mortality and religion from the perspective of a Unitarian Universalist minister who is often asked to develop worship and offer prayer that holds space and honors multiple religious expressions. Sharing his own journey to understand God in his life while recognizing equally deeply held humanist beliefs he invites you to explore your own spiritual path and language through a combination of lecture and poetry.
