Sunday at 9:30 – 10:30  Discussion Group – Meet in the Library

Welcome to the lively discussion of our chosen book, “Buddhist 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

The group is currently reading “Born Aware by Diane Brandon.  Born Aware is an exploration of the experiences of people who have been aware of previous lives from the time they’re born and what this might mean for the rest of us in regard to how we understand the meaning and purpose of our lives.  Anyone is welcome to join the conversation as we pursue a free and responsible search for truth and meaning in true UU style.  It is not necessary to have had this or other kinds of psychic experiences to join the discussion.

If you need a book or information, contact Rev. Nancy Hitt.

Imbolc is a holiday with a variety of names, depending on which culture and location you’re looking at. In the Irish Gaelic, it’s called Oimelc, which translates to “ewe’s milk.” It’s a precursor to the end of winter when the ewes are nursing their newly born lambs. Spring and the planting season are right around the corner. [Read more here.]
