Getting to Know UU: Workshops Exploring our Unitarian Universalist Experience
Workshops: Sundays at 12:30pm
- Workshop 1: Postponed to February 3
Direct Experience—Sourcing the Spirit
This workshop will be an exploration of the Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism, and an opportunity to reflect on our own experiences, how they have shaped our beliefs, and brought us together in this religious community.
- Workshop 2: March 3
Faith in the Covenant— Exploring Our Sacred Promises
This workshop will be an exploration of the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, and the foundation of shared values, shared covenant, and the promises (both explicit and implicit) we make to one another, which characterize this unique religious tradition.
- Workshop 3: April 14
Worth-ship—Serving the Spirit
This Workshop will be an exploration of Unitarian Universalism in practice, and the rituals, and practices that characterize worship services both among UUs, and specific to our local religious community. We will explore the question: “If Unitarian Universalists don’t worship a particular deity, the what do we worship?” and delve into what practices are meaningful to each of us.
All are welcome at any or all of these three Unitarian Universalist-themed workshops coming up in Winter/Spring 2019!
Bring something to eat (there will be snacks, but not a full lunch provided), and stick around after the service to delve a little deeper into our shared faith tradition.
An Introduction to the Interfaith Journey
Every other Saturday 10am-12pm, March 9, 23, April 6
As Unitarian Universalists, one of our sources of inspiration and guidance is the “wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.” We are also influenced by Jewish, Christian, humanist and earth-centred traditions. For 3 bi-weekly Saturdays (March 9th, 23rd and April 6th), Evangeline will lead us in an overview of current interfaith frameworks and practices, such as integral theory, stages and styles of spiritual development, and interspirituality. We will have lectures, videos and engaging discussions, plus an opportunity to explore some of your questions about a faith tradition you are interested in. Limit of 15 to maximize group discussion and learning. Please sign up using the form below by February 28, 2019.
