"A Mid-Summer Night's Dream"
Guest Minister: The Rev. Judith Wright

 

This morning's sermon will explore some aspects of dreaming from both an Eastern and Western perspective.  Most of us dream, whether or not we remember our dreams in the morning.  What do we make of this experience of dreaming?  Come hear some different ways of interpreting our dreams.

Dr. Judith Wright served as settled minister of the First Parish UU Northborough congregation for the past twelve years.  She stepped down this June as their settled minister, and now is happily their Minister Emeritus.  Rev. Wright trained as a child psychologist, and worked in this field for twenty-five years before turning to full time parish ministry.  She has meditated for over thirty years, and is a UU Tibetan Buddhist, with teachers including His Holiness, The Dalai Lama and Lama Migmar, the Buddhist chaplain at Harvard University.  She is the current President of the Unitarian Universalist Buddhist Fellowship.
