Tuesdays In Churchville

We have offered a class in Harford County for over five years. It is held in a cozy classroom at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Harford County (UUFHC) on Rt. 22. UUFHC is conveniently located on Rt. 22 just north of the Harford County Community College Campus. It’s located 20 minutes from Havre de Grace and 10 minutes from the Harford Mall

Making Our Life Meaningful

With our human life we can attain both temporary protection and eventually permanent protection from suffering by sincerely putting Buddha’s teachings into practice in our daily life. Because these attainments are non-deceptive and ultimate states of happiness they are the real meaning of human life.

Mental Strength = Peaceful Life

Being patient means to welcome wholeheartedly whatever arises, having given up the idea that things should be other than what they are. It is always possible to be patient; there is no situation so bad that it cannot be accepted patiently, with an open, accommodating and peaceful heart. When patience is present in our mind it is impossible for unhappy thoughts to gain a foothold and it is the basis for love and compassion.
