NEW! - Leaning into Our Seven Principles

Wednesdays, 7 PM, March 22, March 29, April 12, April 19, May 3

What are our Principles and what meaning do they have for us? Can they be more than aspirational? The seven Principles are simple to state but challenging to implement. Join us as we focus on each of the UU Principles on seven evenings. Come to one or come to all. You are invited to share any print or visual media that has influenced your own encounter with a Principle. This will be an experiential group allowing an opportunity to share our successes as well as our struggles in an attempt to live our covenant out loud. Sharing where we have fallen short or need a hand is especially welcomed.

History of UUism DVD series

Wednesdays February 8 through March 15 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm in
Linus Pauling Hall.  The movies show the significant people and places, from the second century to modern times, who have created the theology, philosophy and organization of Unitarian Universalism.  A brief discussion follows each movie.  These gatherings create a wonderful time for new and old fellowship members to become acquainted with each other and with the core principles.  

Joan Landsberg will be facilitating these sessions.  An outline of the six movies will be available soon.  Members and friends are welcome to come to all six weekly sessions or any that fit into your schedule.

Spirituality Book Club

Meets the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30pm. The format is experiential — we spend most of our time in small groups sharing how the ideas in the reading relates to us personally. There is usually a list of questions designed to bring out key aspects of the reading; each person has the option of responding to whatever questions resonate with them (similar to the UU Soul Matters format).  For more information and current book title, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Yoga on Wednesday morning will resume in March.  Come and practice a gentle guided practice which supports your overall  health. Yoga contributes to improved strength,  stress reduction and balance.  Beginners are welcome. A variety of UUFCO yoga instructors will share the teaching this month.  For questions please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Mission Statement

In keeping with Unitarian Universalist principles and sources, the Adult Religious Exploration Committee seeks to assist members and friends in two areas:

  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning

Goals

Our program seeks to:

  • Inform and educate
  • Inspire commitment to the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism
  • Practice mutual ministry
  • Support and encourage spiritual growth for ourselves and others
  • Understand injustice and oppression as a systemic problem
  • Promote justice through education, advocacy and service in collaboration with the Social Justice Committee
  • Provide opportunities to wrestle with ethical issues

Additional Information

We plan, promote, and offer short- and longer term opportunities to enhance these two important areas of individual and congregational life.

We seek input and listen to suggestions that could become specific offerings.

Some of our offerings each year will utilize UUA resources such as the Tapestry of Faith series and the Congregational Study and Action Issues curriculum. These programs provide excellent experiential and inclusive material that provide significant Unitarian Universalist grounding. Other offerings come up periodically as members volunteer to facilitate classes or discussions.  Contact Jan Lindeman at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are interested in offering an Adult Religious Exploration time limited group.

We also have ongoing Soul Matters groups, which are co-educational and meet monthly to discuss material which is mailed to each member, as well as a Women's Spirit Group which meets monthly and various men's groups which meet on different schedules.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in the UUFCO office if you are interested in joining any of these ongoing groups.
