Rooted in Reverence

Facilitator: Edie Mickey-Silveria

This group draws upon Jewish and Christian sources to deepen our UU Faith and practice. Group discussion will explore contemporary historical writing and music, including biblical texts, prayers, and meditations in our reflection.

In the fall of 2017, the Small Ministry Group Rooted in Reverence is studying passages from “Fluent in Faith” by author Jeanne Harrison Nieuwejaar. We will dissect the chapter on “Covenant” at our meeting this week. 
Some interesting lines from this chapter: 

“We agree to be together in community even if we don’t agree on all the details.”
“We won’t pack up our marbles and go home when we don’t get our way.”
“A rich component of covenant is the gift of forgiveness.”
2nd Saturday, 9:30-11:00 am, Room 1
If you need childcare, you must request it by the Thursday prior to the meeting.
