Unitarians to discuss ‘desire’
On Sunday, June 23, Cyndi Simpson will speak at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock (UUFR). Her talk is titled “The Problem with Desire.”
“Our Buddhist friends tell us that suffering often is the result of desire . . . so letting go of desire can hasten an end to the suffering that is guaranteed to us as humans,” said Simpson. “But what’s wrong with desire and why is it seen as a negative human emotion within the Buddhist tradition?”
The UUFR meets every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at 366 James Wharf Road in White Stone. Coffee and conversation will follow the service. All are welcome.
