The Pathway of Spiritual Maturity is the Adult branch of the MLUC Faith Development Program. It is comprised of individual and serialized classes, film screenings, and service events over two unique sessions, Fall and Spring. These courses are open to MLUC members, friends, and visitors.
The process of becoming spiritually mature is a lifelong task. We can designate milestones along the path, but the path itself never ends. The courses offered in the Pathway of Spiritual Maturity are designed to engage participants in both reflection and action, especially within the context of our community.
On Sunday mornings, Main Line Unitarian Church provides open meditation groups for adults. Meditation groups are a great way to explore your spirituality and connect with the community. Regular meditation practice can increase our self-awareness and allow us to become more open and present to our experiences. We will continue to grow through the discovery of our capacity for compassion and loving kindness. Advanced sign-ups are not required. Learn more about the Meditation Groups.
Led by MLUC members Leslie Wright-Riley, Noelle Hammerbacher, Ashley Sonson, & Mary Mayer, these gentle yoga classes are for all levels. All church members and friends aged 16 years or older are welcome, from beginner to advanced. Bring a yoga mat if you have one. Advanced sign-ups are not required. Email Noelle () for updates.
