Religious Exploration (RE)
It’s going to be another eventful day in RE as our Chalice Children’s session introduces kindness as a gift that can be freely given every day. We will introduce the Golden Rule, which can be found in many faith traditions. The Roots and Shoots friends will finish plans for a busy upcoming spring season. The Coming of Agers will spend time with their mentors, and the Youth group will engage in a chalice circle activity.
Adult Religious Exploration
Our 2018 Adult RE series Faith Like a River continues this Sunday. Join us at 9:00 am in the MacArtor Library with a session called Gently Down the Stream: Polity.
This workshop explores the history of how Unitarians and Universalists have gathered and organized into religious communities. It examines differences between the Unitarian and Universalist polity traditions and identifies sources that have influenced our current governance practices. Participants view our polity—the organization, association, membership, and leadership of our congregations, individually and as an association — as an important part of our liberal religious heritage. In what ways has this heritage served us well? How has it has proved challenging or limiting? Participants identify aspects of our heritage of congregational polity that can help us meet the demands of our own time. This workshop will:
- Offer a definition of congregational polity and track its development in our Unitarian and the Universalist faith traditions
- Explore the meaning and expression of congregational polity in contemporary Unitarian Universalist congregations
- Invite participants to consider the wisdom and strengths our heritage of congregational polity offers to contemporary Unitarian Universalists and the congregations to which we belong.
This is a drop-in class, no registration necessary. Join us!
It’s going to be another wonderful day of worship and fellowship at Mill Creek!
