What Does Buddhism Have To Do with All Souls NYC?
We have a thriving Buddhism & Mindfulness community at All Souls. And we’re one of over 100 Unitarian Universalism congregations that have local Buddhist groups, including Arlington Street Church in Boston, where Rev. Kim Crawford Harvie practices in the Zen Buddhist tradition and serves as Senior Minister. Our Senior Minister, Galen Guengerich, and the leader of our Buddhism & Mindfulness program, Pamela Patton, will join Kim in conversation on Sunday, May 15 at 1pm. We will talk about how Buddhism and Unitarian Universalism are connected.
In the book Buddhist Voices in Unitarian Universalism, Lama Surya Das writes:
“Buddhism and Unitarian Universalism value many of the same things, including experiential practice, study and self-inquiry, mindful awareness cultivation, insightful wisdom development, and loving-kindness, combined with active compassion in the world. This is the heart of sacred activism—empowering, educating, edifying, elevating, transforming, and liberating.”
Rev. Kim Crawford Harvie was ordained a Unitarian Universalist minister in 1984, and in 1989 she was called to Arlington Street Church in Boston, Massachusetts, where she continues to serve as Senior Minister. You can read more about her here: https://www.ascboston.org/about/minadstaff.html#kim.
