Come, open to be moved.

Come, be held in mutual embrace.

Come, engage the world.

Come be made whole. 

 

Welcome to Adult Faith Development at UUCM. Our offerings are open to all members and friends, new and longstanding. We invite and encourage you to explore a  variety of courses, presentations, and events this fall and winter designed to help you be inspired, connect, and live your values.  Our goal is to provide a framework for you to grow (personally, intellectually, spiritually, and ethically) as an individual, as a member of the community, and also as a Unitarian Universalist.

Ideas? Do you have an idea for a program that you would like us to offer, or one that you would like to offer yourself? If so, please contact Rev. Robin  rzflowingforce@gmail.com

Coming of Age…at any age!

A year-long program of discovery and deepening with Rev. Robin

Coming of Age has been a well-loved tradition for UU adolescents and teens for many years. In this program, Rev. Robin has adapted many of the elements of the COA program for adults interested in exploring their beliefs, values, identity, and spirituality. The program will employ many approaches from creative expression to credo writing to a modified “Vision Quest.” We will meet monthly and regular attendance is expected. There will be one longer “retreat” day for the Vision Quest. The program will culminate in a COA worship service on June, 2, 2019. Please register by emailing the office or Rev. Robin at rzflowingforce@gmail.com

Meetings Mondays, 6:00-7:30 p.m. (Please Bring a Bag Dinner) –  October 8, November 12, December 10, January 7, February 4, March 11, April 8.  Saturday, May 4, 10-4 – Vision Quest Retreat, June 2 – COA Worship Service (10:30)

 

Spirited Conversations with Rev. Robin

Book Study

“A House for Hope:  the Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-first Century” by John A. Buehrens & Rebecca Ann Parker.

Led by Caron Carnahan, CLM

Last year, we gained awareness of the history of our liberal faith tradition through the “Long Strange Trip” DVD series.  This fall, let’s look deeper into the theological foundations of Unitarian Universalism.  “A House for Hope:  the Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-first Century”, beautifully written by highly-respected UU ministers John A. Buehrens & Rebecca Ann Parker, explores the theological nature of our religion – what gives us roots, wings, sanctuary and hope.

We’ll have a total of 6 – 1 hour meetings:  Oct. 28, Nov. 25, Dec. 9 from 1:00-2:00; the remaining 3 sessions will be scheduled in 2019.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the church.

Please rsvp by email to Jodi or sign up at the church office by October 1, so we have time order the books.  The cost per copy is $16.00.
