Adult RGL

Adult Religious Growth and Learning (RGL) classes are offered throughout the church year. Most are designed to help us keep asking questions. We not only look at what we believe, but also at how we put our beliefs into action.

Lectures, forums, and programs are open to members, friends, and the public. Past programs have explored bullying, human trafficking, and transgender issues. In discussion are classes on ecology, climate change and social action.

Classes:

  • New UU classes are offered once in the fall and again in the spring.
  • Building Your Own Theology
  • Cakes for the Queen of Heaven

 

Building Your Own Theology  *New Class Beginning September 2017!

The preface of the Building Your Own Theology (BYOT) introduction says it best: this course was “initially inspired by Angus MacLean’s provocative words in his pamphlet “Freedom Is Still the Issue”: “It has been said that liberal religion is a ‘do it yourself kit’. But there is danger that we make it a kit not only without blueprint but without tools and material.” The purpose of this program was and continues to be, to provide some tools for building a theology based on the materials of individual life experiences.”

BYOT is a course that provides exercises and readings to help each of us build our own Credo, our own statement of faith. Depending on the size and interest, the class can be 7 to 10 sessions long. The course will be facilitated by Lenore Askew and the meeting dates, at this point in time, will be scheduled the last Sunday of each month, after church (with the exception of December, when the last Sunday is New Year’s Eve.).The date of the first meeting will be September 24, 2017. If you are interested in participating, please contact Lenore at pandora@ptd.net so that she can be sure to have sufficient materials on hand. Bring a lunch and your interest continuing your personal “search for truth and meaning.”

Look for news about upcoming classes and programs in the Phoenix, on the UUCSV Facebook page or website.
