Rev. Ilene Gillespie – Guest Minister

Many Unitarian Universalists do not connect to the Judeo-Christian concepts of God as a master, a teacher, a disciplinarian, or a parent. What alternatives can Hinduism, one of the world’s oldest religious, offer us as spiritual seekers? This service will explore the concept of bhakti (loving devotion) in the Hindu tradition and how it can inspire our own beliefs and spiritual practices.

Rev. Ilene Gillispie is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist with a vibrant interfaith background. Her area of study is world religions, with a focus on Indian religions. She recently completed a year-long residency at the Durham VA Medical Center serving veterans and their families as a chaplain, and in August will begin her time as settled minister with the UUs of Transylvania County in Brevard, NC.
