Adult Faith Development
“Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving…”—13th century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi (translated and interpreted)
Programs for adults give us the chance to go deeper— intellectually, socially, ethically, and spiritually. From workshops to community service, covenant groups to discussion groups, meditation to marching—all in the context of a supportive spiritual community—Unitarian Universalism as much to offer adults beyond our Sunday services.
“Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am.” —Parker J. Palmer
Who am I? Whose am I? What am I here for? These age-old questions are the foundations of a meaningful life. In Unitarian Universalism, we explore these questions in supportive community. We are your partners in expressing who you are, what you value, and what you believe at all stages of life. No matter what life has dealt us, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are spiritual companions on a path of integrity and interconnection, bringing more love, and more justice, into being.
