Dates & Times TBD | Led by Carr Everbach, Kent Zehner, Mark Chandler, and Dyann Roth
Every religion is unique. Some models of interfaith engagement emphasize the unity or commonality of all religions. Crossing Paths celebrates the values religions share, but it emphasizes their uniqueness. Every faith tradition was born in response to a distinct human struggle. We honor religions best when we work to understand these challenges and aspirations. Attend an evening session to learn about a certain faith tradition and then attend a worship service or other event at a neighboring congregation practicing that faith tradition. Our 6th & 7th graders will learn about and visit a variety of congregations from different traditions this year. We extend the opportunity for adults to join them on these visits. Offered as scheduling allows. Register here..
The next Crossing Paths will examine Buddhism on March 11.
Believers Discussion Group
Second Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. to Noon | Led by Carl Stevens
Among UUs, there are a wide range of theological beliefs. We bring agnostic, theist, atheist, humanist, Buddhist and many other traditions to our shared search for meaning. Some of us refer to this greater entity as God, which has a different meaning to each individual. Honoring this perspective, our discussion group will recognize both aspects of spirituality. No registration required.
Who is Jesus – For You?
Tuesdays February 13, 20 & 27 10:30 a.m. - Noon | Led by Rev. Dave Hunter
As Unitarians (and not Trinitarians) we agree – don’t we? – that Jesus was not God. But who was he? and who is he for you? We’ll look at New Testament writings, contemporary writings, and our own experience. Dave is a retired UU minister and a member of MLUC. He has in the past led a number of adult education classes for MLUC and for other UU congregations. He was the co-recipient of the prize for biblical interpretation at Wesley Theological Seminary in 2003. Register here.
