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.
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
Hungry for Change, a discussion course from the Northwest Earth Institute,begins March 13 and meets weekly for six weeks, every Tuesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. With participation limited to 12 people, the group will meet at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Concord, New Hampshire.
Fee: $25 (includes $21 for the course book and $4 toward a group donation to the Unitarian Universalist Church as a thank you for donating the space). Register online (here) after February 22.
Preregistration is required! Each participant will receive a course book featuring readings to go along with each discussion topic.
Hungry for Changeexplores the true meaning of the phrase "you are what you eat." In six sessions, held weekly, this discussion course challenges participants to examine their roles, not only as consumers of food, but also as creators--of food, of systems, and of the world we all live in. Each session includes readings, short assignments and accompanying discussion questions that address the impact of individual food choices on a range of issues, including ecosystem health, the treatment of factory and farm workers, and the global economy. Many sessions also include video clips, podcasts and websites to deepen the learning experience. Hungry for Change helps participants commit to lasting change by developing and sharing personal Action Plans with each session.
Course goals include:
To explore the interconnected nature of food systems and our relationships to them.
To examine the impact our food choices have on our health, the health of others and the health of our planet.
To consider the ethical and political implications of our current food system and our personal food choices.
