Carl Scovel offers new ways to see Jesus.

Unitarian Universalists who are discovering they're interested in Jesus will want to know about "Jesus Seen with Fresh Eyes," a weekend retreat with Carl Scovel at the Rowe Camp and Conference Center in western Massachusetts October 14 through 16. I know this is a lot of advance notice, but if I don't think to mention something when I hear about it, I'm likely to forget as the date gets closer!

Scovel is minister emeritus of King's Chapel in Boston, a friend and mentor of mine, and the author of Never Far from Home: Stories from the Radio Pulpit, which I highly recommend. (Buy a copy from Amazon, Powell's, or the UUA Bookstore.) And what better time of year to see Massachusetts than autumn?

Carl preached here in Portland at First Unitarian about 3 years ago. Helped fill in while our Sr. Minister was on sabbatical. I learned a lot from him. I would recommend his retreat.

I remember him saying something to effect that we all believe in foolish things. Why not be a fool for Jesus?, he asked. To the extent that life is a series of choices, we can do a lot worse.
