Children’s Religious Exploration
We are currently revisioning our Faith Formation or Religious Exploration program in these post-COVID times. A special part of each Sunday service is the “Time for All Ages” presented Rev. Maddie, Rev. Betty, the Worship Host or a member or friend of the congregation.
All Church Read
The UUA choses what they call a “Common Read” every year and we have read most of them. The 2024 Common Read is On Repentance and Repair by Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg and is available from the UUA Bookstore or ordered through your favorite bookseller. The discussion happens monthly after coffee hour in the minister’s office.
Rev. Maddie and others provide offerings from the Unitarian Universalist Association Tapestry of Faith Curricula as well as from other sources. These can be one-time, stand alone offerings such as Five Wishes or multi-part programs like Hindsight, Humor and Hope, Mindful Eating and more.
Once or twice a year at the church or in the community Rev. Maddie offers a workshop on the end-of-life planning document “Five Wishes”. You can also meet with her privately to receive and discuss the document
Five Wishes helps you express how you want to be treated if you are seriously ill and unable to speak for yourself. It is unique among all other living will and health agent forms because it speaks to all a person’s needs: medical, personal, emotional and spiritual. Five Wishes also helps structure discussions with your family and physician. It is also a great tool to focus discussions with aging relatives so that you know their wishes.
