A Religious Case Against Belief

(Second service begins at 11:15am) We come to QUUF to experience the freedom of belief. In this way, we set ourselves apart from fundamentalists. Yet, as different as we might think we are from fundamentalists, we share one basic assumption with them. It is an idea that we also share, ironically, with hard-core atheists opposed to all religion. What is it? That religion is about what we believe.

The Music of the Night Revisited

(Second service begins at 11:15am) Five years ago I, along with our QUUF choir and other musicians, shared in one of my all-time favorite Halloween services, a service that explored the presence of “the other side” through Andrew Lloyd Webber’s entrancing musical, The Phantom of the Opera. Ever since that service, I’ve wanted to revisit that opera … and this is the year to do it!
