You’re Invited to The Seekers at UUCG on February 19 at 12:30pm
The Seekers, formerly the UUCG Bible Study, is a group of Unitarian Universalists and others who are interested in exploring the great religious books and texts of the world. We have no prescribed theology and honor each person’s spiritual path toward enlightenment, comfort and reason.
There are no “experts” in the group to interpret religious texts for us. Each person shares his or her own interpretation of a particular text without fear of condemnation or ridicule.
We invite you to join us if you have an interest in theological writings and would like to share your views in an open, accepting environment. We meet the third Sunday of the month in the Laboratory. Grab a plate from the potluck and come on down! We meet for about one hour. Contact: Debra Greenwood email@example.com.

It is designed to help you transform fear and despair into inspiration and a sense of empowerment. The workshop will include exercises to help us support one another as we go forth and work towards a more sustainable, just, and peaceful world where all beings can thrive.
