On July 28, Chris Hyslop will speak at the Unitarian Church of Underwood. His topic is “Certain Seeds are Being Sown.” Chris will lead us to consider how ungrounded certainty can lead to unfounded fear. Looking at the last 20 years living and working on conflicts from the Balkans to Myanmar, how can certainty lead to political manipulation and polarization and how can uncertainty promote openness and compromise?
Chris Hyslop grew up in Fergus Falls. He and his family spend their summers on Swan Lake. He has been working overseas since 1995, first as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer then a humanitarian aid worker in the former Soviet Union, the Balkans, Asia and Africa. For over 10 years he has served in the United Nations in Iraq, New York, Sudan and now Myanmar (formerly Burma). Chris annually shares with UCU his thoughts and perspectives on global issues.
The service begins at 10 a.m. A children’s class is offered during the service. All are welcome.
