Adult Religious Education

Classes & Workshops – Summer 2017

Please sign up for all classes at the Adult RE table (unless drop in specified) or register below online. 


Exploring Forgiveness: 

UU member Jane Beach will teach a 3 part series, Exploring Forgivenes, based on former UU Minister Marilyn Sewell’s book, A Little Book on Forgiveness.  (Many of us recently saw Ms. Sewell’s film, Raw Earth). Week One will focus on Why Forgive; week two, Forgiveness is My Gift to Myself; week three, Forgiveness isn’t Complete without Self Forgiveness. As Ms. Sewell says in her book, forgiveness is “ a softening and healing of the heart, in response to pain or injustice. It is a gift, not to the offending party, but to ourselves, as we become no longer willing to nurture the hurt and keep the anger alive.”  Sept. 12, 19, and 26, 1:30 – 3:00. Sign up at RE table or by clicking: Exploring Forgiveness.


Death With Dignity:
On September 17 th from 12:30 – 3:00Wendall Jackson from the Final Exit network will present a workshop on “Death With Dignity”. Final Exit’s mission is “to work toward obtaining the basic human right of competent adults to choose to end their lives on their own terms when they suffer from irreversible physical illness, intractable pain, or a constellation of chronic, progressive physical disabilities.” Sign up at the RE table or by clicking: Death With Dignity. 




A Long Strange Trip:

These CDs provide a history of Unitarian and Universalist thought and practice from the early, liberal strands  at the beginning of the Christian era to what we know today as Unitarian Universalism.  You can check out copies of the DVD’s to watch at home – alone or with a group.  Limit: 3 DVD’s at a time with a 3 week time limit. Contact Adult RE committee if you’re interested.
