Night and Solitude: On the Night View of the World, the Day View Must Follow
By Jon Sievert
Rev. Danielle Green explores our attitude toward darkness as it shapes our views in the daylight hours of our lives at this Sunday’s Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Service. This exploration opens the door to understanding how our evening hours, especially those spent in solitude, shape our spiritual understanding. The late theologian Alfred North Whitehead held that religion is what we do with our solitude. Understanding our relationship to solitude and the holy darkness challenges us to know ourselves more deeply, with a heightened ability to reflect and celebrate the meaning of our lives as we return to daylight. The meaning of night, our night and the soul, will be explored.
