Exploring the Tao Te Ching and Its Relevance to Today’s World

July 10 @ 9:00 am-10:00 am

Presented by Connie Womack

The Chinese philosophy of Taoism is based on the ancient text known as the Tao Te Ching (loosely translated as The Book of the Way). Surprisingly, this ancient text has much to teach us in the modern world about how to live a life of harmony, peace, and interconnection with all beings. We’ll explore a few passages that have uncanny relevance to our lives today.


If you are looking for a spiritual home, come in and experience our open minds, open hearts and open doors. Our liberal religious congregation has been serving individuals and families in Middleborough and surrounding towns with great music, meaningful and thought-provoking sermons and opportunities to give back. We are committed to spiritual growth and lifelong learning with religious exploration that promotes creativity, integrity and compassion.  We work together to build a world that is more loving and more just for all people.

Minister’s Meditation

Summer is almost here.  As my ministry with you approaches its close, I am grateful that our plans for the coming year are beginning to fall into place.  As you know, due to a clergy shortage, we were one of twenty Unitarian Universalist congregations in the U.S. that were not matched with an Interim Minister.  Luckily, we have some talented ministers in our area who have had considerable experience offering part-time ministries to congregations like ours.  In addition, we have dedicated staff and volunteer leaders who are ready to help with everything we need going forward while we prepare for our next ministries.

Summer Music Musings

July and August mark a shift into “Summer Slowdown” where we let go of weekly choir rehearsals and music participation in Sunday services. This is a time to cut back on planning and practicing, to try out new music with no set agenda, to explore without a schedule. The usual hustle and bustle give way to longer and warmer days with sunshine, gardens, and diversion.

Religious Exploration

Thank you to everyone who made this year a success! I love being the Director of Religious Exploration, and I’m excited to announce that we rocked it this year!. I’m extremely grateful to everyone who contributed inside and outside the classroom. We were successful in having weekly Sunday School virtually, and by the end of the year we were able to consistently meet together in person. What will next year bring?  We will see, but we are all optimistic that it will be mostly in person.
