Sunday, February 17th Being Bothandian Rev. Heather Rion Starr
Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Jaco ten Hove uses the adjective ‘Bothandian’ to talk about engaging with both scientific and religious thought—to cultivate, within ourselves, ‘the ability to honor and utilize [multiple] methods of [reflection]—,’ to help coax ourselves ‘beyond over-specialization into more holistic wisdom, which…is very much called for these days.’ What does all that actually mean and is there some wisdom here that we can apply to our lives, communities, country and world?
