Faithful Communication - UUC Teaching Facilitators: Reconciliation Team

NEW Humanist of the Year: The Words of MythBusters TV Show Host Adam Savage - Led by: Rev. Patrice
"This is simply my definition of humanism and I am grateful to share it with you ..." -- Adam Savage

The 2017 Humanist of the Year award is given annually by the American Humanist Association. In 2017, the recipeint was television personality, skeptic, and secular advocate Adam Savage, former host of MythBusters TV show. In this highly interactive discussion, come unpack the contents of Adam's speech and consider what it might mean for your spiritual growth. (Copies of his speech will be available in advance.)
Meets: January 30, 7p-8:30p in the Patio Room

NEW Art and Spirituality - Led by Rev. Patrice
Come explore how art opens us spiritually. We will use music and mindfulness to deeply experience the current art showing in the Sanctuary (Thank you to the Art Committee for their work in bringing beauty to the Sanctuary.)
Meets: Sanctuary, February 7, 6:30-8pm
Fantasy Land v. Reality - UUC Teaching Facilitator: Mark Brandt
Mark will lead what will surely be a spirited conversation about how America's historical roots make it UNsurprising that we now grapple with "Fake Facts". This discussion will be based on the book, Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History by Kurt Andersen.
Meets: Maxwell Library, February 28, 7pm-8:30pm
NEW Reflections on "A Good Death" and "An Auspicious Rebirth" - UUC Teaching Facilitator: Frank Tedesco
Dying needn't be a surprise. Is it really the end? Or not? We will reflect on the notion that we are "spiritual beings" having a physical experience on earth, perhaps not for the first or last time. What is the nature of the "spirit of life" that UUs appeal to in song? Do near-death experiences teach us anything about metempsychosis? We will discuss advance care planning, life review and reconciliation to prepare ourselves and our loved ones for the inevitable transformation we call death. Our conversations will be supplemented with videos, YouTube, TED talks, etc. as inspired.
Meets: Patio Room, April 3, 10, and 17, 4:30-6pm
NEW This I Believe - Led by Rev. Patrice
The program, "This I Believe" has been a popular way for people to write and share core values that guide their daily lives or illuminate some important aspect of living. As Unitarian Universalists, this naturally fits our religious value that we are all on “a personal search for meaning.” The class will guide participants as they focus on their values and beliefs. At “graduation” participants can choose to deliver their essay to the rest of the group. This will be a wonderful way to get to know your deeper self, and to connect at a deeper level with fellow participants. (Note: There is a bit of reflective homework to be sent between classes, and it is only fair to others that you commit to attending all sessions.) Limit: 12
Meets: April 17, 24, May 1, 15, 22, 6:30-8:30
ENROLL HERE: Choose as many as you'd like. Prefer you attend all sessions of a class, but come when you can! *
