Online Adult Religious Education — 3 January 2021

Please join us on Sunday (3 January 2021) at 9:30 AM for our adult religious education class (please note that we are changing back to our regular time for this class).

We will be meeting via Zoom.

What is Sikhism? — We begin the New Year with this unit exploring our third source (“Wisdom of the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life”).

We’ll begin with Sikhism.

There are more Sikhs in the USA than Unitarian Universalists but what do we know of this tradition that originated in 15th century India?

Join us as we endeavor to find out more.

No Online Religious Education for Children (27 December 2020 only)

Our family religious education Zoom class is taking a holiday break as well, but watch this space and other communication on Facebook and Slack from All Souls for news on the winter holiday edition of the kids play day on Zoom.

The tentative date for our next kids play date is Saturday (2 January 2021) time TBA.

Regular family religious education sessions will resume after the first of the year on Sundays at 1:00 PM unless we find a time that works better for more people.

Again, watch this space and all other online places for religious education updates for any upcoming changes.

Please email Susan Caldwell (All Souls Director of Religious Education) if you want to know when the next play date is happening.

Please join us on Sunday (27 December 2020) at 9:30 AM for our adult religious education class (please note the time change).

We will be meeting via Zoom.

We are taking a bit of a break from structed class and curriculum for the next two weeks but not a break from our time with each other.

In order not to go two whole weeks without visiting each other and seeing each other’s faces, we will get together during the holiday weekend Sundays at 9:30 AM (a slightly later time for check-in only and of whatever free-form discussion might evolve in the time we have).

Even if you’re not one of the regular class participants, you are more than welcome to join us and become a part of this kind, funny, supportive and positively brilliant group.

Think of it as a virtual coffee hour before church or a youth group for adults — join us at the link provided above.

Online Adult Religious Education — 13 December 2020

Please join us on Sunday (6 December 2020) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class.  We will be meeting via Zoom.

Join us as we explore the history of our seven Unitarian Universalist principles and the process by which we will eventually add the eighth principle.

At our 13 December 2020 congregational meeting, we will vote on ratification of the eighth principle as a congregation.

For this Sunday, we welcome anyone who would like to attend and ask questions about the eight principle [although we do encourage you to read this FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document first because you may find that your questions have already been answered by the FAQ].

We also recommend that you watch the 18 October 2020 worship service presented by the youth on the eighth principle.
