UUCWC is pleased to offer new learning opportunities for the next few winter months.
In addition to Chalice Circles, Coming Into Connection, and a new Pathways class to be facilitated by Rev. Kim in February, there is another opportunity to participate in antiracism work through Beloved Conversations: Meditations on Race and Ethnicity. This will be offered in late March, through the Fahs Collaborative. Registration closes Feb. 22nd.
I’d like to draw your attention to two new programs. The first is a NEW “Wellspring for the Future of Unitarian Universalism” that will be offered on the second and fourth Tuesdays starting in early February, and running through May. Prompted by the Unitarian Universalist Association’s current review of Article II of the bylaws, (home of the UU Principles and Purposes), the Article II Study Commission partnered with UU Wellspring to create an 8-session program for small groups to explore Article II. There is pre-work for each two-hour session that will inform, inspire, and challenge you to think deeply about the Principles & Sources, Purpose of the UUA, the Inclusion Clause and Freedom of Belief Statement. One of the issues under discussion in the Article II review is amending the Principles to add an 8th Principle (addressing racism). (UUCWC adopted the 8th Principle in 2018.)
The other program we are especially excited about is one devoted to the spirituality of children. In “Tending the Flame: Spirituality and Children,” starting on Monday, January 31st, Rev. Kim and I will explore children’s spirituality and how caring adults can nurture it if they recognize the characteristics and features that make up their spirituality.
