UUFS Workshop: Writing Your Spiritual Autobiography

When: Sundays, August 13th, 20th, & 27th at 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Where: The Chapel

Join UUFS member Samuel Knapp for an interactive program on Writing Your Spiritual Autobiography. Participants will discuss how their ideas of spirituality have changed over time. Some of the questions we will ask are:

  • How do you connect with something greater than yourself?
  • What personal experiences have led your beliefs to grow?
  • What is at the center of your meaning system?
  • How are your conceptions of social justice evolving?

It is not necessary to attend all sessions and you don’t have to (although you can if you want) write an actual spiritual autobiography.

Note: We are open to having more programs if people are interested. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their spiritual autobiographies at a later Sunday Service.

Social Justice Summer Film & Discussion Series

Climate Change is a Human Rights Issue!

When: Friday, August 25, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Where: The Chapel

Climate change is not just an inconvenience or a political game.  People’s lives are at stake, and like many issues, those who are most marginalized will feel the biggest impact first. Rising sea levels are already impacting communities all over the world.  But what can we do? Join us to watch some short talks about this topic and join the discussion for what we can do–before it’s too late! For more information, contact social.justice@uufs.org.

Next Social Action Book Group Meeting

When: Sunday, August 27, 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Where: Room 2

Join us as we discuss Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right by Arlie R. Hochschild. Arlie Hochschild is a sociologist from Berkeley who hits the road to meet citizens who hold political views on the opposite end of the spectrum. Her goal is to really listen to their views and try to come to an understanding of the current American political divide. Come share ideas even if you have read only portions of the book. Contact Janet Takahashi at social.action.book.group@uufs.org with any questions.

Learn What Happened at UUA General Assembly 2017!

When; Sunday, September 3, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Listen in, bring questions, and learn about what happened at the UUA General Assembly 2017. Reverend Nina, Susan Englert, Janet Werkman, and Debra Timmers will be at this informal gathering to share some of their experiences as GA delegates. Who knows, you may decide you want to attend District Assembly in Portland, Oregon, or General Assembly in Kansas City, Missouri next year!
