Guest speaker Kate Hand from Live Oak UU Fellowship in Alameda

Is the current administration ushering in the beginning of the end of life-as-we-know-it? Or the start of the Great Awakening? Could it be both? Join Kate Hand as she explores these questions, and offers some spiritual practices to move toward a greater sense of calm and centered engagement amidst the world’s madness.

Kate is one of the founding members of the Bay Area’s newest UU Fellowship, Live Oak UU Fellowship in Alameda, where she often leads worship, along with her husband, Peter. They met in a UU church in 1996, and this year will be celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. They have a 15-year-old son, Isaiah.

“The world has always gone through periods of madness so as to advance a bit on the road to reason.”
– Hermann Broch

“Joy and sorrow are inseparable…together they come, and when one sits alone with you…remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.” – Khalil Gibran

“Madness is rare in individuals – but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
