Welcome to September, the month of our FUS homecoming!
autumn, we begin our next session of Adult Religious Education programming.
Spending time with others, in a learning capacity, allows us to grow as
individuals and as a faith community. It is through living our Third Principle,
“Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our
congregations”, that we support one another as fellow seekers. We cultivate
self-knowledge, understanding, and awareness when we come together in curiosity
and wonder. Engaged in creative learning, we deepen our connections to one
various forums for learning this fall, we hope to provide pathways to
individual growth and discovery, as well as foster deeper connections among our
members, affiliates and friends. By connecting individuals to the larger whole,
and supporting one another in exploration and spiritual development, our
community grows and thrives. Through workshops, lectures, hands-on activities
and discussion, we will share ideas, engage in discussion, spend time in reflection
and contemplation, and strengthen our sense of who we are as Unitarian
And it is
by the creation of this learning community that we grow in shared vision,
commitment and focus. As we embody our faith and learn to work toward a more
just and fair world for everyone, we live lives of intention and authenticity.
Please join the journey.
Please note that the catalog is in process. Full class descriptions and registration forms are available at the Adult RE table in the Commons. Thank you for your patience!
Yours in promise and faith,
