RELIGION

Getting Started:Pathway of Spiritual Maturity

Crossing Paths
Dates, times and locations to be determined – look for announcements in E-Notes etc., Led by Carr Everbach, Kent Zehner, Mark Chandler, and Dyann Roth
Every religion is unique. Some models of interfaith engagement emphasize the unity or commonality of all religions. Crossing Paths celebrates the values that religions share, but it emphasizes their uniqueness. Every world faith tradition was born in response to a distinct human struggle. We honor religions best when we work to understand the particular challenge and aspiration each religion has devoted itself to. Attend an evening session to learn about a particular faith tradition and then attend a worship service or other event at a neighboring congregation practicing that faith tradition. Our 6th & 7th graders will be learning about, from, and visiting a variety of congregations from different traditions this year and an opportunity for adults to learn about the faith tradition selected and join the visit will be offered as scheduling allows. Email  to sign up.

Believers Discussion Group
Second Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. to Noon; Led by Carl Stevens
Among UUs, there are a wide range of theological beliefs. We bring agnostic, theist, atheist, humanist, Buddhist and many other traditions to our shared search for meaning. Some of us refer to this greater entity as God, which has a different meaning to each individual. Honoring this perspective, our discussion group will recognize both aspects of spirituality. Email  to sign up.
