“Service for All Ages: Metamorphosis” Presented by the Youth Group.
A time of change in our lives while making the world a better place.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) is an 8- week intensive seminar that teaches you ways of living directly with your life experiences in an open, honest and affirming way. The program teaches participants how to consciously and systematically apply mindfulness, in order to connect with what is genuine, true and healing within each of us.
In this program, participants work to improve their ability to face difficulties, to manage the challenges of life, and to improve the ability to be with and enjoy all that life has to offer. MBSR training provides a proven means for helping people to reduce discomfort associated with physical and emotional pain and to improve participant's ability to comfortably be with stressors and pain that can not be eliminated. Commitment to a daily 45-60 minute guided home practice is necessary for participation. Those who are curious can attend the orientation to learn more about this program and decide whether to participate.
NOTE: Materials fee of $35.

Introduction to Unitarian Universalism Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger offers this class for people new to Unitarian Universalism and those who have been UU's for years. The course will offer an overview of our Unitarian Universalist history, our theology, and our evolving identity as a religious tradition. We will discuss how the way we govern ourselves is an expression of our faith, and we will talk about worship, religious education, and the rituals and symbols you are likely to encounter in our churches.
While the class starts at 1 pm, anyone who is interested can gather at 12:30 to share a light lunch. Please register at the membership table, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office.
