“WELLSPRING” happens every Wednesday evening from September to May. Its mission is to bring people of all ages and interests together in small groups to learn about a variety of topics and enjoy each other’s company. An (optional) affordable catered dinner is offered at 6 p.m., and participants head off to their classrooms at 7 p.m.
This year, our program offerings center on six themes: Justice; Community-Building; Communications; Personal Enrichment; Faith/Spirituality; and Celebration/Fun. Free childcare is available for younger children (starting at 6:45 p.m. in the Susan B. Anthony room in lower Peace Hall.) Wellspring is a great way to get to know more people in a small-group atmosphere. Please join us!
Wellspring Programs for Wednesday, February 21, 2018
Why can’t they think like I do… and how can I possibly talk with them?, led by John Luecke and Michele McIntosh. This 90-minute, participative workshop draws on the work of cognitive linguist George Lakoff to examine our differing moral beliefs. We’ll also explore communication techniques that can be used to talk with people whose beliefs differ widely from our own. The overall goal of the workshop is to help participants understand that despite widely differing perspectives on political and social issues it is possible to effectively communicate with another person who holds beliefs that differ from your own. Join us for another fantastic workshop offered by our Skillful CommUUnications Initiative team! (Music room?)
Five Questions: A Theological Process for Discovery and Growth (5 of 6), led by Rev. Dr. Justin Osterman. (Note: This class began on January 24 and required a commitment in advance to all six sessions.) (Clara Barton) (Break-out spaces: Dickens, Schweitzer, Dix)
Harry Potter and the Sacred Text. What if we read the books we love as if they were sacred? Join us each week to listen to the podcast and discuss topics like vulnerability, friendship, and destiny. Follow along at hpatuufr.wordpress.com! This program is for ages 16 and up; drop-in participation is fine. (Teen Cave)
