Deepening Our Meditation Fri, Feb 16

Featured

Deepening Our Meditation is a monthly day of practice which begins with progressive relaxation, sitting meditation, discussion group, walking meditation, and time for reflection on our personal practices. On Feb. 16 our theme will be We Are All Doing Time, a consideration of those behind bars and what we might have in common with them.

We will meet in Palmer Library from 9 am to 3 pm. You can come for the whole day or part of the day. Please bring a lunch and mats or cushions to make yourself comfortable for lying or sitting.

Thirty Days of Love – Courageous Love Awards

As part of the Unitarian Universalist annual “Thirty Days of Love” campaign, we take this opportunity to thank our Social Justice Project Coordinators for their outstanding leadership. These leaders are models for other members in our congregation to emulate as they consider what role they might play in making our society more just, peaceful and sustainable. It is for that reason that we are honored to present them with our 2018 “Courageous Love Award,” at our 11:00 am service on Sunday, February 11, 2018
