This on-going Adult Enrichment group meets every week on Tuesday evenings for one hour of meditation including a reading. Come, sit, listen, and meditate with us.
Yoga is a multipurpose tool for improving a lifetime: the essence of Yoga is nonphysical inner development. To varying degrees for each individual, Yoga brings inner quiet, peace of mind, character strength, and spirituality. We each relate to it and its many physical and inner benefits in ways that suit our individual needs and personalities.
This Mindful Yoga program cultivates the abstract benefits. It encourages a quiet, mindful awareness while doing a full range of classical postures. Postures improve health through strengthening, purifying, and toning of the body, as well as of the nerve, and energy systems. Improved health, self-confidence, and a feeling of well-being, foster the inner results. Although the postures are a valuable tool, their improvement of the body is a byproduct, not the goal of Yoga practice.
Appropriate for a range of students, the approach is sufficiently safe, gentle, and even-paced for new students, while providing depth, variation, and practice options for experienced students.

This service offers a time for meditation, reflection, and renewal through music, brief words, and silence. Come sing, light a candle, and nurture your spirit during this nontraditional worship experience - and bring a friend! There will be a rehearsal from 6 to 6:45 pm for singers who would like to learn the harmonies to the chants we will sing.
We are also looking for instrumentalists interested in participating, but would need to know in advance who is able to come. For more information, please contact Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger at 603-410-4830 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the first time, the Finance and Prudential Committees are recommending a "program budget" to be voted on at Annual Meeting. This is a big change, so we're providing two chances for you to have all your questions answered: May 6 and 13 after church. The Treasurer and representatives of Pru and Finance will present the budget, and answer any questions so you'll be prepared to vote at Annual Meeting on May 20.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a relaxed, impromptu chat with fellow UUs, no agenda, no commitment, just fellowship? Well now you can! Starting April 3rd, and for the rest of the church year, you are welcome to bring your lunch to church on any Tuesday at noon, and join the rest of us as we simply enjoy one another’s company. Our minister Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger suggested this idea, and I am all for it. You never know, there may even be homemade cookies to share! Hope to see you there. -Bobbie Herron, Adult Enrichment Committee
Dinner starts at 6:00, we'll be here at 5:30 to cook/prep.
All those interested in honing their skills in designing and leading worship are invited to Worship 101 on Saturday, May 19, from 9am to noon. The session will cover such things as the difference between a lecture and a sermon, the creation and submission of the order of service, paying attention to transitions, and how to write for public speaking.
Anyone leading one of our summer services is strongly encouraged to participate in this workshop but all are invited to attend.
Suggested reading before the workshop is Worship That Works: Theory and Practice for Unitarian Universalists by Wayne Arnason and Kathleen Rolenz. The book is available in our library or can be purchased for $15 from Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger.
Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger will be leading the workshop. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 16, 2012.
