Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? Inquiry as a Practice of Growing
Rev. Dara Olandt

Today we honor the roles of “inquiry”, “seeking” and “questing” in our own paths and shared UU tradition. Taking Paul Gauguin’s painting, “Where Do We Come From, What
Are We, Where Are We Going?” as a starting point, we
explore some of life’s most challenging questions through the lens of our liberal religious heritage.
The UUC Choir
 will sing at the service.
