SPRING 2019 ADULT FAITH ENRICHMENT
Popcorn Theology (For Mature Audiences)
Led by Rev. Lucas Hergert
Third Tuesdays, January-June 2019, 7-8:30 PM
Join us as we explore provocative questions of life and meaning while deepening our appreciation of Unitarian Universalist theology. Excerpts from movies (some R-rated) will be shown with engaging discussions to follow. Possible films include A Serious Man, Annihilation, Mr. Nobody, Mother!, Pan’s Labyrinth, and The Sunset Limited. Come to one session or all of them. And yes, popcorn will be provided!
Join intern minister Mandie McGlynn for an evening of lighthearted deep conversations, aka our “Pub Theology” program. All are welcome, and young adults are especially invited! We meet at the wine bar in Mariano’s (2999 Waukegan Road). There’s also a Starbucks nearby in the building, if wine isn’t your jam, and hot and cold food as well. Sign up for our Newsletter to learn about future dates.
Chalice Circles is our version of small group ministry. It is a great way to reflect theologically while making new friends! These groups meet monthly for 1.5 hours to share and cultivate relationships. Sessions run from January-June in 2019. Sign up for our Newsletter to learn about registration.
Women’s Programming offers a quarterly event, usually on a Saturday morning, that involves an educational program and fellowship. Keep an eye on the Newsletter and announcements in the order of service for upcoming events!
Charlie’s Garden Poetry Group
Charlie’s Garden Poetry Group is an open, informal group that supports one another in the spiritual practice of reading best-loved poetry. You don’t have to be a poet to participate; you may want to read something you have written or like, or just listen to others read. They meet on the second Sunday of the month at 11:30am-12:30pm in room 9.
Meditation on the first and third Sundays of each month at 9:00-9:45am in room 6 (i.e., “Bletzer”). Beginners and long-time meditators alike are welcome to attend. Sometimes there is a designated leader, and sometimes members simply come to meditate in silence together. Come late or leave early if you need to. You’re welcome for as much time as you’re able to attend.
