Adult Religious Exploration
Step Into Adult Religious Exploration!
‘Stepping Stones’ is our way of encouraging you to take another step down your life path. Have you taken an introductory class such as A Chosen Faith book discussion? Then try something new. If you’ve been serving on a committee but want to know more about lay leadership, take a class on congregational or church dynamics. If you would like to offer to facilitate a course, please suggest it!
Contact Lay Minister Dan Everett at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Some Stepping Stones to Consider in 2020
“Come, Come, Whoever You Are” is for visitors, newcomers, and long-term members who would like to know more about Unitarian Universalism (UU) and our Fellowship. This Adult Education series is sponsored by UUFA’s Membership and Adult Education teams. The series title and each session are named after a familiar UU hymn.

Books about Religion, a Discussion Group
For the past two years, this group has had a weekly discussion of books about religion, chosen by the participants. A variety of books such as Ecclesiastes and The Islamic Jesus as well as books by Bart Ehrmann, Deepak Chopra, and Elaine Pagels have been chosen. The group decides what to read next, and someone familiar with that book will facilitate. This group meets every Monday evening from 7 until 8:30 p.m. via Zoom. Everyone is welcome. Diverse spiritual or religious beliefs enhance the discussions. For more information as to what is on the reading schedule or to sign up for the group, contact Paul Gurian (PHGurian@earthlink.net).
Political Discussions are currently not being held.
