Impermanence - Bill Hart

Impermanence (The Buddha taught that everything is impermanent).  A description of how the Buddha taught the everything is impermanent.  That includes flowers, tables, mountains, political regimes, our body, feelings, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness.  This impermanence does not necessarily lead to suffering.  Without impermanence, life could not be.

This was our first service of the new program year with our new minister Cindy Davidson.  The Water Service (Water Communion ) is a ritual service common in Unitarian Universalist congregations. It is usually held in the fall. Throughout the year, members of the congregation collect small amounts of water that have meaning for them, either from a special location (e.g., the family home, an ocean or river, memento of a trip) or a special occasion (first rain after a dry spell). At the service, the samples of water are placed in a single bowl so they can merge. Some of the water is often saved, sterilized, and then used for ceremonial purposes at other times of the year; the rest is returned to the world.
