Journey Groups

Logo2warmestAb-JourneyGroupDeep discussions about the theme of “What Does it Mean to Live a Life of….?”

Once a month, we will gather in small groups of six to ten people called Journey Groups. Journey groups are designed to encourage close relationships for in depth and intimate discussion of the monthly themes. Being part of these groups is a wonderful way to deepen your spirituality and connect to others within the Fellowship.

Schedule for Journey Groups

The groups will meet at the Fellowship at a few different times to accommodate people’s schedules.

How long will I be in a group?

We ask folks to make a one-year commitment to joining a Journey Group; so the Journey Groups that meets each time will be the same group of 6-10 people from month to month.

What is expected of participants?

Participants are expected to bring a positive attitude and a willingness to share and to learn. They give the agreed upon meetings a high priority and make an effort to attend every meeting. They commit to the group’s covenants.

Vision Behind the Overall Theme

Using this question to frame our monthly themes reminds us that Unitarian Universalism is not a religion of “anything goes” and “believe whatever you want.” Rather it invites us to be a distinctive kind of people and live lives characterized by particular values. In other words, Unitarian Universalism is counter-cultural. Indeed, building on our mission of fighting spiritual disconnection, our monthly themes help make clear that Unitarian Universalism’s greatest competition for peoples’ “souls” comes not from other religions, but from an often “unhealthy” culture that lures us away from who we most want to be. Unitarian Universalism’s vision of “the good life” reconnects us and helps keep us on track— inspiring us to live lives that keep us most deeply connected to our deepest selves, life’s gifts and needs greater than our own.
