Winter Greetings!

Janet Swanson



He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.... In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity. ~John Burroughs, "The Snow-Walkers," 1866

Adult RE programming begins again in late January. Our first lecture, Children Are Not Colorblind - How to Talk With Children About Race, will be held on Sunday, January 24 at 3 p.m. in the Landmark Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

Information regarding all of the other classes, workshops and lectures will be available online and in paper form by mid - January.

Join in community as we learn together. And as the year turns, may you have shelter from the elements, food to sustain body and mind, and the gift of beauty in your life.


Yours in promise and faith,

Janet Swanson, Director of Adult Spiritual Development
First Unitarian Society of Madison

A drawing of a landscape that is also a person. Our Mission

Our Adult Religious Education Ministry assists our spiritual community in mindful and ethical living by deepening our connection with our UU heritage and Principles, and integrating these into our daily lives by:
  • Developing and refining our own personal theologies through education, action and reflection
  • Cultivating spiritual practices which help us clear the mind, open the heart, enrich the soul and more fully engage in the world around us
  • Building a caring community of seekers
