Find the Eternal Light of Kindness: Even in Dark Times

Rebecca Hunt

Kindness is vital to surviving dark times. Progress depends on a positive outlook on life. When we reach out to others doing small and large acts of kindness we are feeding hope, moving ourselves forward and combatting the forces of darkness. Guest speaker Rebecca Hunt, Ph D., a historian and senior instructor at the University of Colorado at Denver, and story teller at Crimson Dawn, will share ideas and philosophies about kindness and its role in creating a better world.


My arrival at UU Casper was very synchronistic. I had been extremely wounded by the Christian church and unable to set foot in any establishment that remotely resembled a church.

First, I first heard UU mentioned in a book called, “Ahab’s Wife,” by Sena Jeter Naslund. Later, I heard some 15 second commercials about UU Casper on the radio. Then, I was talking to an uncle whom I only have contact with about once a year, and he said, “Maybe you should give a different church a try…”

All of these things combined kept whispering to me, “Unitarian Universalists.” I drove by their building and noticed it didn’t have the word “church” on the sign. Rather it says, “community.” One Sunday I went. That was a year ago. I found a place I belong. It’s truly a community rather than a church. UU Casper is my safe place, a place to heal.
