The Spiritual Leadership Institute

Adult programming at UUCR acknowledges the need and desire for deeper personal and spiritual growth of members of all ages. Our Spiritual Leadership Institute (SLI)was developed in 2015 to offer classes, programs and events that challenge the mind, broaden perspective and deepen connections within the UUCR community. Courses are offered by a variety of professionals and trained lay leaders, UUCR staff, members and invited guests.

Recent offerings have included an exploration of the landmark feminist religious education curriculum, “Rise Up and Call Her Name,” a program on fire safety for elders, Joanna Macy’s “Active Hope” program focusing on green living and spirituality,a workshop on Sacred Dance and more.

Our ongoing MOSAIC (Mosaic of Spiritually and Intellectually Curious Women)  group offers monthly opportunities to explore feminine spirituality.

Ongoing Chalice Circles and Covenant Groups also represent and support the congregation’s commitment to lifelong learning.

UU Basics (a class offering UU & UUCR history) is offered several times throughout the year. Most ongoing programming is open to new friends and Fall schedules will be announced shortly.

As new offerings are identified and scheduled throughout the year, announcements will be posted here so please check back frequently! All programs are advertised in the various church communication channels (church e-newsletter, “Our Congregational Life” Sunday updates, emails). We invite your feedback, suggestions, and participation. Contact the Director of Lifespan Religious Education if you have questions or ideas!

COMING THIS FALL:

‘Articulating Your Unitarian Universalist Faith’– a five session course that ‘guides participants through a series of easy and engaging exercises resulting in the ability to communicate their liberal religious ideals’. Do your friends ask you about UUCR? Have you ever struggled to describe Unitarian Universalism to a friend or a stranger? If so, we hope you’ll sign up for this class that helps individuals to articulate what it is about this faith that calls and keeps us! A schedule of classes will be available shortly (by late August so that signups may begin!)

MOSAIC (Mosaic of Spiritually and Intellectually Curious Women) offers monthly opportunities to explore feminine spirituality-this group is open to all inspired by the divine feminine. The first meeting of the church year happens on Tuesday October 17th, 2017 @ 7:30pm. Each month members of MOSAIC offer a different spiritual theme-find updates here!
