“What happens to your spiritual and religious beliefs over time? ” Seventeen years after the 2002 documentary “WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?” in which six diverse American teenagers shared their spiritual struggles and aspirations, the Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalist fellowship will revisit them via DVD provided by the larger fellowship to reveal how their beliefs have changed.

In this new before-and-after film “WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE NOW?” a Catholic, Pagan, Jew, Muslim, Lakota and Buddhist offer their deeply personal faith journeys, life challenges, and evolving ideas about higher powers, life purpose, the nature of suffering, religious intolerance and death. They do so against the backdrop of a society in flux and amidst growing religious polarization and disengagement. Designed to be a stand alone film, WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE NOW? is said to be “an invaluable addition to discussion on religious diversity and millennial spirituality in America.”

This program begins at 10:00 a.m. on December 1st at the BHUU fellowship in Rice Lake, 230 W. Messenger St., and will be continued December 8th with a follow-up discussion led by members Judith Barisonzi and Pat Shifferd.   All are welcome to attend and remain for fellowship and light nourishment after the service.

PLEASE NOTE: due to severe snow storm this weekend of December 1st., we have moved this program to December 8th. A follow up discussion will be planned later in the month, to be announced. There will be no service at the BHUU this Sunday, Dec. 1.
