Supporting Spiritual Growth through Reflection, Connection and Service
Come share your truth in a Chalice Circle.
Registration begins for our 2019-20 Chalice Circles on Sunday, September 8th. The purpose of the Chalice Circles is to strengthen and expand the life of the congregation.
In Unitarian Universalism, we recognize that each person has learned some share of truth and each has gained some hard-won wisdom. In small groups lead by two trained facilitators, Chalice Circles offer safe settings in which to speak from our lives and experiences with the expectation that our words will be heard and respected–without criticism. These small groups provide an opportunity for individuals to make deep and meaningful connections by sharing their own stories and deeply listening to the stories of others. Through the spiritual practices of deep listening, authentic sharing and respectful silence, Chalice Circles affirm and promote our third UU principle – acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth.
Every Chalice Circle reflects upon the monthly congregational worship theme to create opportunities for congregation-wide reflection. During the year the members of each Chalice Circle create and complete one service project together to serve the congregation or the wider community.
Groups form anew each church year to help develop wider connections over time. Come share your stories! Look for more information about the Chalice Circles and registration forms at the Program table in Fellowship Hall in September. The program will begin in October and run through June 2020.
