UUSP Religious Studies Discussions

Wednesday, May 27, 2020 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

ONLINE while dealing with COVID

Contact:  Pastor Jack  - jfdonovan@bellsouth.net

UUSP holds two religious studies discussion groups on the same topic every Wednesday, 10:00am and 7:00pm, holidays permitting.  

Our focal point is customarily a book of current interest.  Participants are encouraged to read the book.  But given life's busy pace, reading time may be short.  So quotations from the selected book are provided each week as the focus of discussion.

Book selections are made in hope of helping us deepen our understanding of life and how best to care for it.  They range from the wisdom traditions (eg, religious scripture and commentary) to the scientific (eg, E.O. Wilson's "The Meaning of Human Existence") to the practices (eg, studying Dreamwork with Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" or meditation from literature such as Mindfulness Magazine's booklet on Mindfulness Practice) to studies of the Unitarian Universalist traditions (eg, the introduction to UUism by Church and Buehrens, "A Chosen Faith").

All are welcome to participate.

UUHP (Unitarian Universalists Helping People):

Monday, June 8, 2020 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Front Office

UUHP (Unitarian Universalists Helping People):

Formerly the Homeless Ministry, UUHP meets at 6:00pm on the second Monday of each month in the UUSP office.

Through the generosity of our congregation, the UUHP Ministry receives from fund raisers such as Stone Soup, monthly pancake breakfasts, and share-the-plate, allowing us to donate to the Free Clinic Woman’s Shelter, Daystar, Family Resource Center (LGTBQ),  Family Promise and Celebrate Outreach. We support these local independent service providers for the economically challenged because they are proficient in how they are able to offer assistance.

Coordinating and   improving the Friday night picnic allows us to work with others in the community to help offer nourishing  meals for the food insecure

In the coming year we look forward to continuing our existing programs working on solutions to house the un-housed. Join UUHPs.

Reggie Craig, Chair
UUHP Ministry

 

Group: UUs Helping People
