"Christmas is the Season for Reason: Abandoning Logical Fallacies" - Tyler Owen.
How do we know what we believe is true? One of the UU principles is "a free and responsible search for truth and meaning". Logic and reason are some of the most valuable tools we have in the search for truth and meaning. Logical fallacies are pitfalls that we can sometimes encounter in this search and we must train ourselves to recognize and avoid them.
Our annual Holiday Cookie Exchange will take place immediately following today's service (12/13). If you would like to participate please contact Jennifer Fenton-Schuster for more details no later than Friday, December 4th.
