Adult Religious Education Sunday at 9:30 – 10:30 Discussion Group – Meet in the Library Welcome to the lively discussion of our chosen book, “Humanist Voices in Unitarian Universalism”, a collection of essays characterizing the various aspects of historical and contemporary Humanism. Sunday at 9:45 – 10:30 Spiritual Realities – Meet in the Social Hall Join in to pursue an energetic discussion of spiritual practices and experiences from the ecstatic dancing of the Shakers to the not dissimilar motion of the Sufi whirling dervishes and the science that underlies the physiologic process of these and other spiritual practices. How do prayer and meditation change your brain? Are they the same thing or something different? What criteria do we use to discern valid experiences from false hype? How do our spiritual experiences affect our world views? Everyone is welcome; previous attendance is not necessary. ____________________________________________________ Sunday Services Sunday Services, 11:00 am July 2 I, You, Me, Us, Rev.
