  • Looking Inward, Outward, and Onward 2023

    Looking Inward, Outward, and Onward 2023

    Looking Inward, Outward, and Onward: Engaging Your Spiritual/Internal GPS

    February 26, March 5, 12, 19, 26, April 16

    After Sunday Worship in the Chapel


    In this 6-session class, you will explore your current ethical and/or religious identity, seek to deepen your understanding of how this identity evolved, and consider how you can deliberately set a course for becoming the person you want to be. You will create a tangible expression of what, if anything, you trust or have faith in and of how you seek to integrate your core beliefs into the way you live your life. This could be a written piece, or it could take another form (for example: music, dance, video, visual art).

  • UU Theology in 2023

    UU Theology in 2023

    January 8, 15, 22, 29, February 12, 19
    After Sunday Worship in the Chapel

    UU Theology is an introduction to concepts that undergird the religious
    orientation of our fellowship. Each session addresses a different dimension of traditional theology, beginning with Christian doctrines that Unitarian Universalism rejected and revised.

    One aim of this course is to shed light on theology as a systematic view
    of the Divine, human nature, and the significance of our lives. An equally important aim is to consider UU’s evolving understanding of these matters as our community expands and our times demands greater inclusivity and more urgent response. Finally, this course asks us to reflect on what thoughts and feelings do these theological considerations spur in ourselves as modern day UUs.

    Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions of the course.

    1. What is Theology? - Is “UU Theology” an Oxymoron?
    2. Encouragement to Spiritual Growth - The Nature of God and Spirit
    3. Theological Anthropology - Human Nature and the Good Life
    4. Eschatology - Facing Fear and Hope
    5. Process and Liberation Theology - Living in Fidelity to Greater Freedom
    6. Ecumenism - Expanding the Beloved Community

  • Don’t think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money. — Voltaire

    Money plays a role in nearly every aspect of our lives. For better or for worse, it connects us to one another. Depending on how we approach and understand it, our relationship with money can enhance or limit our ability to live our lives to the fullest. Over time, most of us dedicate a significant part of our lives to earning money. We use significant energy planning and worrying about both the money we have and the money we don’t have. We agonize over how to plan for the future and how to use money to support what we care most about. We use money to respond with compassion to events in the world, to advance causes we believe in, and to support justice-making efforts. We engage in—or avoid engaging in—money conversations with those close to us and with fellow travelers in the groups and communities of which we are a part.

  • The Inquirers Series is offered each Sunday morning to welcome and inform visitors and friends about ERUUF. Members are welcome as well. You will converse with ministers, staff, and lay leaders as you learn about ERUUF’s values, culture and ministries, along with basics about Unitarian Universalism. Eight topics are covered, one per session, and then repeated throughout the year.

    UU Elevator Speech

    UU Elevator Speech is a 3-session course that guides participants in developing a short statement about our Unitarian Universalist faith. It is called an “elevator speech” because, on an elevator ride when someone asks, “What is Unitarian Universalism?” you only have a short time to make a meaningful statement!

    2. Writing Your Elevator Speech
    3. Sharing Your Elevator Speech
