Classes & Workshops – Fall 2017

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


The Evolution of Unitarian Universalism, Conflict and Creativity. 10/25, 11/1, 11/8, 11/15. 7:00-8:30ish. Come to one, come to all. 

The story of Unitarian Universalism is a dramatic one, originating in the earliest age of Christianity. Our ranks include some of the great heretics of the Reformation and the innovators of the Enlightenment, Protestant pioneers in America, Transcendentalists, Humanists, and today’s free thinkers and justice warriors. We have been in a perpetual revolution against dogmatic and restrictive religion, and, ironically, against ourselves, since the movement began. Come find your place in the epic of the Living Tradition! Taught by Rev. Chris Bell. No sign up required.

After each film Bill Stayton will lead a discussion focused on hearing each other’s different viewpoints and gaining a better understanding of the subject. Donation suggested.
