Tuesdays Together: a Lifespan Religious Exploration program
Starting October 23, BFUU will pioneer our new "Tuesdays Together" program. Each Tuesday we start off with a potluck and circle worship from 6 - 7 pm in the Connie Barbour Room. (Please bring a dish to share or a small monetary contribution.) At 7 pm everyone will split off to either a committee meeting or an enrichment activity. Upcoming enrichment activities:
October 23rd, 2012: Theology & Worship
This workshop is an opportunity to deepen relationships while learning more about Unitarian Universalism. Activities explain the process-oriented nature of the Unitarian Universalist approach to religion while presenting some basic theological understandings shared by most UUs.
October 30th, 2012: Where Do We Come From? UU Roots
This workshop offers a brief overview of Unitarian Universalist history, focusing on ideas and people more than on institutional and denominational structures. We will identify famous Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists. Stories from our UU tradition and our congregation's history will enrich our discussion.
