Journeys on Sunday Mornings

Journeys is an open adult Sunday morning group led by member-facilitators for the purpose of supporting spiritual growth among all participants as we each travel on our individual faith Journeys. The selected modified Chalice Circle format provides an opportunity for each person to share and listen to others in a safe space. In order to deliberately nurture participants' understanding as to how our UU faith guides our spirit life, UUA materials and/or any other sources deemed consistent with UU Principles and Traditions are utilized each week by presenters.

Topics vary widely but a few examples of topics have been prayer, nature as inspiration, and the UU Good News story. After the day's topic has been briefly presented, participants are asked to reflect and share their thoughts as to how the topic of the day matters in their everyday lives. Each session is complete within itself.

Please consider joining our discussions in order to learn more about how our UU faith inspires and challenges us to behave in our daily lives. There is always room for another SoJourner!

Time, Location, and Contact:

Sundays, 9:30 A.M.-10:30 A.M.; Church Library; led by Vava Cook
