Reflect, Discuss, and Learn About SOUL MATTERS

The Soul Matters series offers UUCY members and friends the opportunity to reflect, discuss and learn together the meanings of spiritual concepts and how we might integrate them into our lives.  It is appropriate for long-time members and new visitors and everyone in-between.

The small group gatherings are the first Sunday of each month after Pancake breakfast beginning about 11:15 AM.  We will meet for 90 minutes in the Ivy Room on ground level at end of the hall.  No registration is required.

Next Sessions:

March 1        Wisdom: Is this all there is? Cleverness with compassion.  Link to Wisdom Resource Packet:

April 5         Liberation: How is my freedom tied up with the freedom of others?  Accepting that we are already enough.  Link to Liberation Resource Packet:

The online resources provide readings and questions that introduce the theme and prompt reflection and discussion. Our group session pulls from this material to challenge us to think about how the topic applies to our daily living.  Because efforts to embody spiritual values in our lives requires more than intellectual engagement, “spiritual exercises” will guide experiential engagement with the theme.  If you prefer a hard copy of the packet, please leave a message for Susan Kaphammer at the church office. Your engagement at our session may be enhanced by consideration of these materials before the session, but this is not required. 

While consistent participation is encouraged, each session can stand alone and anyone interested is encouraged to attend any session.
