On Wednesday, April 3, at 5 p.m., Rev. Alison Eskildsen and Vivian P. Sellers began facilitating a discussion of the book A Chosen Faith by the UU Rev.’s John Buehrens and Forrest Church. Each author reflects on the Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism. The group will meet every Wednesday at 5 p.m. for 6 weeks (and possibly 1 Saturday). The book is easy to read and enjoyable conversations will be had!
You may buy the book from UUFA (two are currently available), from the UUA Bookstore (https://www.uuabookstore.org), Athens local Avid Bookshop (either by phone or online https://www.avidbookshop.com/shop), or other online booksellers.
