Soul Matters—Ministry Themes 2015-16

For 2015-16 we have joined with more than 100 UU congregations across the continent in exploring common themes.  These “Soul Matters” themes allow us access to a storehouse of materials and resources on each theme.  A “Soul Journeys” group led by Maria O’Connor, Director of Religious Education follows the themes, as do some of our Affinity Groups and children’s classes. Our Library Committee also makes resources available on the themes.

These and other penetrating questions guide our Sunday worship, small group, and other experiences.
