What experiences or moments have you had of feeling ‘wow,’ feelings of connection with the mystery and wonder of the universe? How does your spirituality relate to the earth, to yourself, to others? What are the benefits of spiritual practice, ritual? What calls out for your care and compassion?What are the roots that ‘hold you close’ and the wings that ‘set you free’?
These are some of the questions you may encounter in this six-week series, which will take place weekly on Wednesday evenings
from April 17 through May 22 at 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Oak Room at UUS.
Spirit of Life is a UUA program that offers participants space, time, and community to explore their Unitarian Universalist spirituality. Each session focuses on a different aspect of the spiritual life, framed by the lyrics of Carolyn McDade’s song “Spirit of Life.” Like the song, the workshops are designed to be welcoming to Unitarian Universalists of many spiritual and theological persuasions. Participants are invited to claim an inclusive definition of spirituality and recognize the spiritual aspects of their lives. In order to get the most benefit from the sessions and enjoy a supportive learning community, participants are encouraged to attend all of the sessions.
