Playing Soccer with Buddha offers a series of thought-provoking reflections on topics from spiritual growth to social justice, from diverse views of God to an exploration of the long, rich heritage of Unitarian Universalism. In these penetrating, far-reaching essays, every reader will find both touchstones for their beliefs and challenges to their convictions, encouraging us all to look clearly, think deeply, and embrace a passionate spirit of life. The pieces were first delivered from the pulpit by the author during his tenure as senior minister at the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, 1986-2014. Active in a wide array of progressive causes and twice arrested for civil disobedience, The Reverend Drew Kennedy served as minister of the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee for 28 years, tripling the size of the downtown congregation and inspiring a legacy of social justice involvement and community outreach.
