Ordinary Enlightenment, John C. Robinson, Ph. D. will be the topic at the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains Church Sunday. The mystics tell us that the universe is conscious and alive, and everywhere saturated with God’s Presence.

The mystics also reveal that in the presence, the world is literally transfigured into heaven on earth, right before our eyes, when we learn how to see. Clinical psychologist Robinson has developed a model for the integration of psychotherapy and spirituality and taught it to mental health professionals throughout the state.

Persons planning to attend are invited to bring contributions to the Interfaith Food Ministry for the children to pick up during the service.
