Shared Pulpit Workshop

You have a story. Each of our stories is part of a larger narrative of being human in this world, in this time. One of the most powerful spiritual practices we have is in the sharing of our stories and reflecting on the ways those stories awaken us to love, illuminate our humanity, connect us to the holy and ineffable – and common – experience of life. We invite you to join Rev. Greg for this 8-session workshop which will guide you in developing your story into a sermon and worship experience that you may share with the congregation. The workshop will meet on Saturdays from 9:00 – noon. January 19, 26; February 9; March 2, 23; April 13; May 11, 18.

Listening to Our Lives

Śrāddha is a Sanskrit word that is often translated as “faith.” Perhaps more accurately, it refers to “that which we set our hearts upon.” This course is designed for you to know yourself more fully, so that you may live out more deeply those things you set your heart upon.  In this small group, we will engage in the perennial religious topics: inspiration, God, community, suffering, death, spiritual practice, living our gifts, and salvation. It is intended for those who wish to engage seriously, and open-heartedly with these topics; those who seek to listen to who their lives call them to be. Rev. Greg will lead the group meeting on Monday evenings from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm: January 28; February 4, 11, 18; March 11, 18, 25; April 1, 8. Attendance at all sessions is necessary. If you know you are unable to attend for more than two sessions, we invite you to register for the course when offered again. Please contact Rev. Greg (minister@uusmc.org) if you have questions.

Mary Higgins leads the group on Sundays following worship 12:00-2:00 pm: February 10th – March 3rd, in Classroom #1. Don’t forget to bring a lunch!
