Tryon UU Fellowship announces new ministerial lineup

Published 5:29 pm Wednesday, August 2, 2017

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Tryon will have a new ministerial lineup for the rest of this year. Dr. Marc Mullinax, professor of philosophy and religion at Mars Hill University, holds both a Ph.D. and an M.Div. In addition to his teaching activities, Marc has lectured with the Great Decision series at Isothermal Community College. Marc recently became faculty chair at Mars Hill. Rev. Mullinax will speak on the first Sunday of each month through this year.

Reverend Mullinax’s topic this Sunday is “The Cracks Where the Light Gets In,” and references Kintsugi, the Japanese art of fixing pottery with gold lacquer. The cracks that remain visible – the breakage and repair – are understood to be a part of the object’s history and therefore beautiful. Our autobiographical “cracks” contribute to an aesthetic wholeness…holiness. Breakage and repair are the graced history of a person.

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship meets at 10:30 a.m. on the first and third Sundays of the month. Services are held at 835 N. Trade St. in Tryon. The fellowship welcomes all regardless of their spiritual path, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. For more information about the Fellowship follow them on Facebook at TBUUF.
