March 8,2015-“The Word, the Image, and the Creation of Otherness in Western Religions”-Jim Curtis

In these troubled times we wish to unite our hearts with our minds in order to understand the Judeo-Christian heritage in which most of us grew up. We can best do that by ignoring the doctrinal differences that divide Western religions, and by concentrating on the way they treat the relationship between the word and the image. This relationship has caused tension from the days of Moses until our times. Come and hear Jim talk about this enduring tension, and find out how the word and the image affect your spiritual life!

Jim Curtis is a long-time member of First U. He has preached at the First Unitarian Church of Providence, Rhode Island, and at the First Unitarian Church of Silver Spring, Maryland, among others.
