UU Adult Learning Opportunity: Sunday, March 31, 7:00 pm

It’s not too late to join the nine travelers who began the Long Strange Trip UU history program last month. The six-DVD series traces the winding thread of our faith tradition through the past 1600 years, since the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD.

Sunday, March 31, 7- 8:30 in the Common Room
Part II – The Birth of Unitarianism

Come enjoy the film, some dessert, and discussion. Judy Bruce-Mangle, a retired Lifespan Director of Religious Education, and Harry Mangle will facilitate this event. Although each DVD stands alone and it’s not necessary to attend each session, your understanding will be enriched if you attend them all as each session builds on those coming before.

Remaining sessions:
April 28 Part III – American Unitarianism
May 26 Part IV - Universalism
June 30 Part V – Evolution
July 28 Part VI – The Hundred Year Waltz

Singing Meditation

Second and Fourth Wednesdays

7:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the Choir Room

Singing Meditation is a form of worship that alternates repetitive singing of short, simple, interfaith songs with periods of undirected silence.

Singing meditation involves singing chants, rounds, and other simple songs repetitively, until the songs sink deeply into your heart. Songs are alternated with undirected intervals of meditative silence. Group members do not need to have a strong singing voice or musical skills to participate and fully enjoy Singing Meditation.

This event is open to the public.
