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 firstname.lastname@example.org

“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.
2019 meetings: Jan. 27, Feb. 24, March 31 and April 28. Meeting time: 12:00-1:00 pm.

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” ~ Rumi
The act of writing is a powerful tool for self-discovery, healing, and renewal. Writing can be a creative as well as a therapeutic journey; a method of marking our experiences in time, space, heart, soul, and mind. No previous writing experience is required or even expected. This class is NOT about being a “good” writer or about “how” to write. Nor is the program intended as group “therapy.” Rather, it is designed as a communal vehicle for personal exploration and growth. All participants will be encouraged to “write for themselves” not for an audience; sharing will be optional and welcome.
