We are people of the Word – and people of the Words. Yet language is not the only form through which we worship. In this workshop, we’ll explore the power of visual, tactile, and auditory arts to deepen and expand our spiritual experiences.

It has been suggested by some that our species should not be known as “homo sapiens” but rather as “homo religious” – that even those who identify as atheist have a compulsion toward the religious. Nowhere is that more evident than in film and tv, those seemingly secular shows and movies we love (and love to hate). Together, we’ll look at a few places where the sacred crops up in our secular entertainment and consider the questions that arise.

Great for people seeking to make meaning in a modern world

Great for anyone seeking to explore or deepen spiritual practice

George Bernard Shaw once said, “Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” Together, we’ll explore what it means to live a life filled with art and tap into art’s power to lead us to truth, possibility, and compassion.

Unitarian Universalists are called to draw the circle of welcome ever wider, knowing (as UUA president Susan Frederick-Gray has said) “No one is outside the circle of love.” But how welcoming is our worship to people of color, LGBTQ folk, those with disabilities? Together, we will examine the presumptions of sameness our very Protestant worship makes and begin the work of expansiveness and inclusiveness in the precious hour we spend together each week.

Great for congregations who want to be more expansive and welcoming
