Continuing Renewal & Transformation

While our first week of Renewal & Transformation may be behind us, there are still plenty of opportunities to continue a path of reflection and balance. Take a look at what is coming up!

“Mistakes & Miracles” Book Read and Discussion (Limited Space Available)

Begins April 27 @ 10:00 am

In “Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity, and Power in Ministry,” Rev. Dr. Kristen Harper writes about the power of relationships in creating multiracial, antiracist Beloved Community:

“Undaunted, we stumble forward and backward together, transformed by the power of our openness and brokenness.” 

Join Angie Vincoli and Jenny Kim in a book read and discussion that explores our own personal and congregational experiences (failures and successes) in moving towards multiracial, antiracist Beloved Community.

Using the book, Mistakes and Miracles, the 2022-2023 UU Common Read, in which co-authors Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin-Greenberg explore the journeys of five different UU congregations and the joy, disappointment, and growth that these congregations found in their journey towards Beloved Community, we invite you to stumble in the right direction with us.

This will be the first of four discussions.  Participation is limited to 12. Childcare available.

Tai Chi – Spring Series

Misako Kay, Fellowship Friend and Tai Chi teacher at 18 Springs Healing Center, offers this four session series, beginning on April 29 at 3:30 pm.

Email the Director of Lifespan Religious Education at pam@uufws.org with any questions.

Collage Workshop

May 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

Art is a natural way to practice mindfulness. When creating art, the colors, textures, and sounds pull us into the moment. Meditation allows us to calm the body and mind, stay in the present moment, and pause before we react. Through this increased awareness we become cognizant of our feelings by tuning into our bodies.

Liz McEntee will facilitate this workshop, limited to 12 participants.
