Adult Enrichment Program
Keeping Up With Our Kids
Continuing December, October 18th from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
This class will continue to meet monthly in the Friarplace. Come join us any month. The adult class will follow along with our Faith Development grade school study of Bible Stories this year. We will read and discuss scripture selections on which the kids’ curriculum is based. Why do we read these stories? How does the way you were taught about them in Sunday School differ from what you think now or from the way they may be approached by the children? Do they have anything important to say to us as Unitarian Universalists
Meetings are on the third Wendesday of each month.
Facilitator: Janet Robinson

Creation (and Destruction) Myths From Many Cultures
Starts on Tuesday, Jan 14th from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. (5 Sessions)
We are all living on the big blue planet that is 8,000 miles in diameter. It travels at an average speed of 67,000 mph around the sun. And the sun is traveling roughly 450,000 mph around the galaxy. There are about 7.7 billion different folks on that earth spaceship. All have asked the question who we are and whose we are? Let’s explore some of those answers looking at ancient stories all the way to modern stories told to us by science. Let us consider that what we call a myth today was scientific truth in the past.
Meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month.
