Upcoming Adult Classes

Sacred Text Reading Group (Wed.)

Dickinson

07/06/2022, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (Add to calendar: Google, iCal, webcal)

A twice-weekly online sacred text reading group. We meet on Saturdays, 4-5, and on Wednesdays, 12-1. All are wide open and you are welcome!

Using a spiritual-practice approach, in each session we will explore a different brief scriptural text in depth. The aims of the sessions are educational (learning something about the texts and traditions), spiritual/moral (discovering what the texts ask of us), and community-building (getting to know each other better). Our practice usually follows this version of Lectio Divina.

Amy will have a version of the text available to share; “bring” your own if you like. All are welcome, as are your suggestions of future texts. Group members also take turns facilitating, if they want to try that role.

Our text for Wednesday, July 6, 2022, is the first stanza of Emily Dickinson’s poem #303, “The Soul selects her own Society”:

The Soul selects her own Society –
Then – shuts the Door –
On her divine Majority
Obtrude no more …

For check-in / getting-acquainted time, and for those who are new and want a brief orientation to the practice, the room will be open ten minutes before and ten minutes after the session.

Our text for July 9, 2022, is from Needing the Dragon by Alicia Ostriker:

A woman sits in my armchair and speaks:
We have slain the many gods
they were unreal
the one god in whom we say we believe
is also unbelievable
Humanism keeps the dragon
as a kind of toy
no
as a mask

To have check-in time, or if you are new and would like a brief orientation, arrive ten minutes early. And all are welcome to stay ten minutes after as well, for more getting-acquainted time.

Our text for Wednesday, July 13, 2022 is from Susan Sontag’s book Regarding the Pain of Others:

“So far as we feel sympathy, we feel we are not accomplices to what caused the suffering. Our sympathy proclaims our innocence as well as our impotence. To that extent, it can be (for all our good intentions) an impertinent — if not inappropriate — response. To set aside the sympathy we extend to others beset by war and murderous politics for a reflection on how our privileges are located on the same map as their suffering, and may — in ways we might prefer not to imagine — be linked to their suffering, as the wealth of some may imply the destitution of others, is a task for which the painful, stirring images supply only an initial spark.”

For check-in / getting-acquainted time, and for those who are new and want a brief orientation to the practice, the room will be open ten minutes before and ten minutes after the session.

Sacred Text Reading Group (Wednesday)

Our text for Wednesday, July 20, 2022 comes from an anonymous source: almost certainly a Jew, or group of Jews, in hiding literally underground during the Third Reich. UU minister the Reverend Everett Howe has written about it at length here, including the translation, which has taken numerous forms. Here is the one he suggests:

I believe in the sun, even in the darkness.
I believe in God, even if God is silent.
I believe in compassion, even when it must remain hidden.

For check-in / getting-acquainted time, and for those who are new and want a brief orientation to the practice, the room will be open ten minutes before and ten minutes after the session.

Our text for Wednesday, July 27, 2022 is from US Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield’s book, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, page 35:

Whether in grief, anger, wanting, or restlessness, we can see that much of the work with the contractions of the heart is the work of our “unfinished business.” We can encounter the forces and situations that have held us closed to ourselves and others. What is conflicted, ungrieved, unfinished shows itself as soon as we become attentive. It is here that we must learn how to work respectfully with the profound forces that govern human life. It is the layers of these energies that create contraction and suffering, and the freeing of them that brings awakening and release.

For check-in / getting-acquainted time, and for those who are new and want a brief orientation to the practice, the room will be open ten minutes before and ten minutes after the session.

Upcoming Newcomer/Visitor Events

NO Discovering UUCPA today

07/10/2022, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm (Add to calendar: Google, iCal, webcal)

Amy is on vacation, so our next gathering will be August 14. Please mark your calendar for that date!

– – –

When: Second Sunday of most months, 1-2pm
Where: Zoom online meeting
Led by: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern, Parish Minister

The sessions rotate through four themes–jump in in any order.

1. UU Roots: the origins of today’s Unitarian Universalism.

2. Finding Your Path At / With UUCPA: building your theology, nurturing your spirit

3. Education and Justice: our philosophy of education and action

4. How Things Work / Volunteering and Membership: how we make decisions and how you can be a part of this volunteer-led community (this is our August 14 topic)

In addition, we’ll be able to share the spiritual explorations that have brought us to this point and ask every question that’s on our minds — and even get the answers.

When in-person gatherings are easier, we will re-introduce a tour of the church buildings and grounds, with a brief history of the congregation told along the way.
