- Online Contemplation and Rejuvenation Services, July 16 (body) & August 27 (spirit), 6:00-7:30pm (central time). We live in times of profound change. We see it globally, nationally, and many of us feel it on a deeply personal level. How can we grow our capacity for discomfort? What tools do we have for expanding our minds to new perspectives and possibilities? How willing are we to stretch ourselves into action to create the world of our dreams?
All of this growing, expanding and stretching can make our spirits a little achy sometimes. So, give your spirit some spa time! Join Dream Lab Chief Experience Officer Cherie Anderson, and Unitarian Universalist Minister Rev. Kelli Clement, for spirit-rejuvenating contemplation this summer. We will nurture our minds, bodies, and spirits in 90 minute cyber-services. Attend from the comfort of your own deck chair! All belief systems, or lack thereof, are joyfully welcomed. No preaching (pinky swear!). Just reflection, centering, and intention-setting. Registration and more information here.
- IN FALL: Talking about Race and Racism with Kids, September to October 2017, Sundays noon-1:30 pm. Our Religious Explorers program is bringing in educator Denise Konen for a five-week workshop on how to talk to your kids about race. This is in-depth work aimed at building communities that are able to engage in productive conversations about racism and whiteness with kids. Note: families registered and signed up to volunteer for the FUS RE program in 2017-2018 are eligible for a fee waiver. Space for this workshop is limited. For more information on how to register for it, please .
