Sunday, June 4th – Krista Tippett (Ware Lecture delivered 2016)
“The “art of living” is another way to talk about “practices of faith”—virtues—the being and doing of spiritual life that our world so desperately needs in the 21st Century, now as much as ever before. I’ve become intrigued by unexpected themes that have arisen in my life of conversation—religious wisdom that reveals itself in fresh and compelling language, from fresh and compelling angles. So, for example, I’ve come to think of beauty as a core moral value—a kind of litmus test for whether something is of God; and a quality we should seek as essential to vitality of life. I’ve also learned from scientists and artists as much as spiritual thinkers about the inevitability of failure in life, of the necessity of improvisation—and the mystery that our flaws and failings are at the heart of our capacity to be present to the world with all its flaws and failings.”
During the program year – August through May – there are offerings available for adults and teens to enrich and enliven your Sunday mornings at UUCG. These programs take place at 10:00am, prior to the 11:00am Worship Service.
On the first Sunday of each month, the Faith Development Team hosts a guided discussion introducing the monthly theme. Indulge your curiosity, join us and deepen your understanding! What gifts does this month’s theme hold for you?
On the second Sundays, Spiritual Practices are introduced. Come with the courage to experience something new, or re-invigorate a forgotten practice. What connects you with spirit?
On the third Sundays, there will be discussions about various ways to get and stay involved in the movement to work toward social justice in our community, our nation, and the world. How can you have an impact? How can your compassion make a difference?
And on the fourth Sundays, beginning in March, the Faith Development Team will sponsor a book discussion based on The Third Reconstruction, by The Rev. Dr. William Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, which is the 2016-2017 UUA Common Read.
We also offer a program for children of Early Elementary-age (5 – 7) each Sunday.
These children enter the sanctuary with their parents and the congregation for the beginning portion of worship, then are escorted out to their program in the Studio, until parents pick them up at 12:15.
Nursery/Toddler care is provided by a staff and volunteer team every Sunday from 10:30 to 12:15.
To participate in our Religious Exploration programs, please check-in with the RE Greeter when you arrive, fill out a registration form, or register on-line.
Come be Curious, Courageous, and Compassionate with us!
