Welcome to theme-based ministry!
Each month we focus on a broad theme that has resonance for Unitarian Universalists in our personal and spiritual lives inspired by the Soul Matters program. More than 200 of our sister congregations are collaboratively exploring these questions through the Soul Matters program. Soul Matters doesn’t dictate how we look at the themes or what we do on Sunday mornings but provides resources to support our explorations here at UCM. This year, we will center our spiritual explorations around a set of themes inspired by and in concert with the Soul Matters program.
Building multi-generational community and transforming lives requires our focused attention. While this may surprise some, our religion is not one where the rule of the day is “you can believe whatever you want,” but a system and set of tools for seeking answers both individually and in the collective. While it is true that you may reach different answers and discern different truths than the person next to you, we inherit a shared history and go forward connected by legacy, responsibility, and hope.
Our 2021-2022 themes are:
September: Embracing Possibility
October: Cultivating Relationship
November: Holding History
December: Opening to Joy
January: Living with Intention
February: Widening the Circle
March: Renewing Faith
May: Nurturing Beauty
June: Celebrating Blessings
Unitarian Universalist faith formation shapes and inspires children, youth, and adults who are prepared to create real change in our larger world. How do we come to understand the values and ideals championed by our religious tradition of Unitarian Universalism? How do we live into these values and ideals to become the people we wish to be? Join us in this journey.
