DURING WORSHIP SERVICE
Children’s Religious Exploration (RE)
Chalice Children: Children will explore ways that friendships are surrounded by love. The class will talk about ways we are alike, and ways we are different. Through song, activitiy, story and play, children will have an opportunity to learn more about one another and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
Roots and Shoots: The class will continue planning this year’s projects focused on care and concern for animals, the human community, and the environment. They will also start planning for the Christmas play!
High School Aged Youth: (YOUTH GROUP INTEREST MEETING) There will be an interest meeting for all High School age youth (and their parents) this Sunday (October 22) in classroom #4 following worship (12:00-12:45) Please make every effort to have your young person attend this very important meeting – and don’t forget to complete your survey!
BEFORE WORSHIP SERVICE
Spirit in Practice: Body Practices with Karen Rege
Come discover what’s on the plate of this new workshop series.
Join us on Sunday morning in the MacArtor Library, 9 am-10:15 am.
No registration required – just drop in!
What would a truly “embodied” spirituality look like in the twenty-first century? Unitarian Universalists have much awareness of modern—and ancient—assertions that our minds and bodies are one. We understand that the two cannot be separated and that, in fact, any attempt to do so would almost certainly lead to a corruption of both.This workshop is focused on having participants come to understand their spiritual journey to be not separate from their own physical experiences, but deeply rooted in them. An obvious choice would be to introduce one of the more well-known physical practices such as yoga or Tai chi. Instead, in this workshop participants will be invited to have an experience of pure movement: what does it feel like to move your body freely, without purpose or intent, to move for movement’s own sake?
It’s going to be another great day at Mill Creek!
