The First Parish in Portland, Unitarian Universalist, will present the 84rd Annual Pageant of the Nativity, Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 4:45 p.m.in the historic Meeting House at 425 Congress Street, just off Monument Square in downtown Portland. First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church has been staging its Pageant of the Nativity for 84 years now. The Pageant sports a cast of nearly 80 people, most of whom are adults, and many of whom have been in this pageant, in one role or another, for nearly all of their lives. There are no words spoken by the actors in this pageant. Indeed, the actors are never named. Rather the story of the Nativity is told in music and scripture while the actors, one by one, create a tableau in the candlelit sanctuary that is sculpted to replicate a Fra Angelico painting. Light bulbs in the 30 odd sconces in the church are replaced by candles and the scriptural "story" of the birth of Jesus is read by the minister who is hidden off to the side and unseen by most of the audience. In addition, history is honored by the fact that some of the costumes have been created from fabrics brought back from Palestine by nieces of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
The Dzogchen Buddhist Meditation Center Presents:
On Knowing Reality: The View and Practice of Buddhist Meditation
“Everything that arises is merely the play of the mind…” Trungpa Rinpoche
This is called ’resolving our true nature”. The first step on this path is to see thoughts as the dynamic expression of awareness rather than being caught in the storyline of discursive thinking. Once we are able to be aware of ’thinking’ without being caught in its discursive web, we are able to recognize conscious awareness itself and study its nature. This is the path of meditation. The nature of this awareness is actually the experience of ’sacredness.’ Hence the path of spiritual training in meditation is the highest expression of our human nature -- “Unborn, unceasing, with a nature like the sky”
