In this Wellspring program, “A Taste of Soul,” Chalice Circle facilitators will discuss the ideas behind Chalice Circles and the Soul Matters curriculum. Program attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a modified Soul Matters session. The next program is scheduled for noon to 1:15 p.m., December 19, in Peace Hall, Room 101. Look for the signs and enter from the lower courtyard. All programs are in-person. Registration is not required.
December’s theme is Opening to Joy.
Soul Matters Chalice Circles offer the gift of spiritual connections. We do that (1) by listening deeply and intensely to each other without responding, (2) by holding still and offering space for each person to share without questions or challenges, and (3) by holding out and holding up, by offering gratitude and noting meaningful connection to others about what they share.
Soul Matters is a theme-based curriculum used by UU congregations nationwide, and provides content for youth programs, worship services and small group ministry programs such as Chalice Circles. Recently, Rev. James and Rev. Sasha base at least one monthly service on a Soul Matters theme, and it is used in our Religious Education program.
