Ch Dennis Peters travels to Rice Lake December 10th to conduct the Sunday Service at Blue Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship;  in this season of loving kindness, he reminds us that being kind to all -includes ourselves, and to “Give Yourself a Break.”  

“The world is a dark place” says chaplain Peters – “yet you carry on.” As another once said:  “Carry on, brave soldier.” But when we reach a point where it all seems too much:  too many projects, too many fronts in the battles for a world with peace, liberty, and justice – what do we do then? Do you give up and merely slouch in front of the television? Or, do you give yourself a break!?

Chaplain Peters completed a Master of Arts in Religious Leadership, concentrating on Interfaith Chaplaincy, focused on spiritual care.   His M.A. program included spiritual support for individuals and an ongoing study of different faiths as part of the journey, followed by completing his first chaplaincy at a daytime center for those without homes, or with addictions or mental health issues.
