Join Bernise Lynch for 6:30 Vespers exploring this month’s theme: cultivating relationship. Learn how one Zulu word could change our world
At 7:00 PM join Rev. Claudia in the launch of our second year exploring theology. This first session will offer an introduction to theology and explore its role in our non-creedal faith. Is it true that “UUs don’t do theology?”
Wednesday Vespers & Program themes:
1st Wed. Theme Talk or Special Program
Discussion about the monthly Soul Matters theme.
2nd Wed. Liberation Conversations: Pursuing our Congregational Goals to practice Anti-racism. These conversations will provide updates on the work of the Racial Justice Advisory Council and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss why the work of liberation at UUAvl matters.
3rd Wed. Spiritual Practices: Centering Love
Centering Love – Love is a core value of our UU faith. On the 3rd Wednesdays this fall at 7 p.m., we will center our spiritual practice of love-in-action with self, others, and the world. As Cornel West says, “Justice is what love looks like in public.”
4th Wed. Theology
We will begin with an introduction to theology: What is it? Do UUs do Theology? Participants will select theological themes for future sessions. Examples: Hope, Death, Forgiveness and Reconciliation, Evil, Covenant.
