led by Rowan Wheeler

A key part of Unitarian Universalist philosophy is willingness to consider new sources of knowledge and spiritual guidance. How can we open our minds and hearts to new paths and ideas while at the same time remaining true to ourselves?

Hajj Film & Discussion

Monday, September 12 ♦ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm in Bailey

Would you like to understand better the rituals and meanings of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca that every Muslim who can is expected to do at least once in their lives? Come see and discuss “Inside Mecca,” an informative and beautiful documentary that follows three pilgrims – from Indonesia, South Africa, and the United States – and explains what they see, do, and experience. Children are welcome!

This program is sponsored by STAR, First Parish’s adult religious education program, and is open to members of the public. Feel free to invite friends to join you. Questions? Email star @

Can they sit side by side without contradiction?
