Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley http://www.bfuu.org
Newly displayed in BFUU’s historic Fellowship Hall are nine large colorful banners which symbolize many of the major religious traditions from which Unitarian Universalists derive inspiration.
Each banner represents a specific religion through its best known symbol: the Cross for Christianity, the Yin/Yang for Taoism, the Star of David for Judaism, the Om for Hinduism, the Four Directions Medicine Wheel for Native American Traditions, the Arabic Script for Allah to represent Islam, the Wheel of Dharma for Buddhism, the Venus of Laussel for Feminine Spirituality and the Chalice for Unitarian Universalism.
Collectively, the banners stand for the Unitarian Universalist commitment to religious pluralism and cross cultural spiritual sharing. They also represent all the colors of the rainbow, offering a strong statement of support to LGBTQI persons and communities.
The banners will be formally presented to BFUU members, friends and guests at a reception honoring their creator Emma Lehman. After viewing the banners in the Fellowship Hall, guests will learn of Ms. Lehman’s background and sources of artistic inspiration.
Light refreshments will be served. This is the first public event presented by BFUU’s Aesthetics Subcommittee. For more info: 510-841-4824
