2013-2014 Adult Religious Education: C. H. A. T

Radical Hospitality. Feed the Spirit. Heal the World.

It’s time to C.H.A.T (Again).

For the last two years we on staff, and many within the congregation, have grown and deepened in our understanding of the possibilities that come when pairing spiritual practice and education.  It has become an additional form of worship, community building and spiritual maturation,  that continues to drive our time here at UCS.

This year, 2013-2014, we are diving into uncharted territories, for both UCS and, for as far as we can tell, the wider Unitarian Universalist world.  CHAT, (Church Happens Again on Tuesdays), will  be our once a week gathering time in addition to worship, combining small group ministries and adult education.

Seeing the richness within our new mission statement our year will be broken into three trimesters, each with a focus on one portion of the mission statement:  Radical Inclusion, Feeding the Spirit and Healing the World.

The first and second sessions of CHAT beginning are now completed. The third and final session looking at the Healing the World portion of our mission statement begins on Wednesday, February 25th at 7:30 pm with an introductory lecture by Maggie Doyne and continues on Tuesday, March 4th. Light refreshments will be served.

As we tell our newest members, attending worship is one of the best ways to stay connected to this community; to know its vision and be a part of its work in the world.  This year, we invite you to CHAT.  As Vanessa said in her Service of the Living Tradition sermon at General Assembly, it is time for experimentation.  We can be the congregation that inspires and leads our tradition in innovative programs that make the human quest for meaning accessible and rich for all.  Plus, you know we are going to have a lot of fun.

Spring meeting dates are for six consecutive weeks: March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 2 and 8.

Looking forward to a fabulous year ahead.
