Unitarian Universalist Fellowship to hold service Sept. 11

Published 11:18 am Monday, August 29, 2011

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will have its first service of the fall on Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 at 10:30 a.m. The speaker will be Pamela Meyer Crissey of Mill Spring and her topic will be “Church and Science: The Great Pendulum Swing.”
“Many unbelievable events occur throughout the world every day, such as walking on hot coals without being burned, controlling body temperature through meditation and people healing themselves through the placebo effect,” Crissey said. “These events are witnessed by many but still disbelieved by the scientific community. How could this be when science is supposed to be at the forefront of discovery? What holds them back?”
Originally it was the church that forced science to concentrate on the physical aspects of life. Ironically it is again the church that is pushing scientists to look at the supernatural realm.
Crissey will explore how science and the church can meet in the middle, support the emergence of new discoveries and propel us into a future world where polarity is no longer an option but where community and oneness prevail.
Crissey has been a publisher of metaphysical books since 1991. She is currently a minister with the Alliance of Divine Love organization. She became a chartered herbalist with the Dominion Herbal College in 2005 and she is a practitioner of plant spirit medicine.
