Moving Into Prison Ministry -- November 9 and 10

MOVING INTO PRISON MINISTRY
Saturday, November 9, 10 am – 4 pm
& Sunday, November 10 – 12:15 pm

Religious freedom for people living in systems of mass incarceration is protected by the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution.

Yet exploring and practicing a wide breadth of spiritual and religious views can be challenging. Prisons are dominated by largely fundamentalist teachings and resources.

This conference will help people interested in prison ministry who offer alternative perspectives and can support the unmet religious and spiritual needs of those who are incarcerated. Prison ministry is an expansive term that can include such activities as becoming a pen pal, making regular in-person visits, hosting classes or worship services in prison, advocating, and more.

Learning about the realities of the prison industrial complex will help you engage in both prison ministry and justice work.

This event is hosted by the Worthy Now Prison Ministry Network (a program of the Church of the Larger Fellowship), in partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Gainesville and the Alachua County Faith Leaders Alliance.

For Newcomers: an Introduction to Unitarian Universalism

This monthly class is for visitors and newcomers to our Fellowship -- or anyone interested in learning more about the Unitarian Universalism.

Next class is Sunday, October 13, at 12:15 pm (following service).

Some questions we’ll ponder:

  • What is Unitarian Universalism?
  • Does this faith tradition have a long history?
  • What do Unitarian Universalists believe?
  • How does one become an active friend or member of UUFG?

Join us first for for a tour of our campus, then come inside for conversation and a snack. All are welcome!

"Clarify Your Values" Workshops, starting October 7

Unitarian Universalists are not a group with shared beliefs, but rather a group with shared values. Because of that, it is very important that whether you are new to the faith or a long time member that you take the time to recognize just what your values are.

This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it will be leading a series of workshops - with no wrong or right answers - to help you examine what values are important to you personally. The workshops will be held at 7 pm every Monday evening from October 7 to November 11 in the Fellowship's Common Room.

Have the courage to find out which of your values are truly important to you.
