We welcome Rev Terry Cummings return to Blue Hills UU again this week, to bring insight on “The Hero’s Journey” according to Joseph Campbell.  Well known to Unitarians, Campbell’s best known text “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” carries the premise that “The returning hero, to complete his adventure, must survive the impact of the world.” The goal of the return is to retain the wisdom gained on the quest and to integrate it into society. Who are YOUR heros???

Rev Cummings reminds us that Campbell is remembered by many as the scholar who advised everyone to “follow your bliss,” and for conversations with PBS’ Bill Moyers in the late 1980s on The Power of Myth.  Cummings will reflect on the ways in which Campbell’s connection between the world’s religions and the ancient mythological heroes’ journey is relevant to our own spiritual journeys in a denomination undergoing change, in an ever-changing world.
