Young Adult Reflection & Discussion Series
Topic: The Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism
Most of us come from different faith backgrounds. We identify as seekers and learners, and we recognize that we are on our own unique spiritual journeys as we freely and responsibly search for truth and meaning. We hunger to be in community with others as we travel our own journeys; that desire for open and supportive spiritual community is what brings us to Unitarian Universalism.
As Unitarian Universalists, we understand that what may be a source of truth and meaning to you, may not be meaningful to me. Some of us might find truth and meaning in Christian teachings, while for others, traditional religions don’t resonate at all. Some of us find deep meaning in nature. The Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism outlines the diverse sources of truth and meaning that our community affirms.
Young Adults at UUCC are invited to join an 8-part UU Wellspring reflection & discussion series built around the Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism. In our time together, we’ll reflect on and share about our own experiences with each of the sources. We’ll listen to each other, try on spiritual practices for grounding and connection, and help each other make sense of the sources of our own spiritualities.
We are meeting the 2nd Wednesdays and 4th Tuesdays of each month, starting on Tuesday, January 25, 2022.
