This Week In Religious Exploration

Sunday, October 25 – Speak Your Mind

Can speaking our minds have disastrous consequences? What about the old adage of not talking about religion and/or politics being a good idea, does it still hold? When we do speak from our heart, does anyone really listen, or do we just tune out? Are truth-telling and authenticity truly an important skillset to cultivate for oneself and expect from one another, or does a person’s word really mean far less than it once did? Join Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty as she wonders about the importance of what might be considered “old notions” of integrity and communication.

POSTPONED – Evensong

Please consider joining us for a quiet, peaceful Evensong service on the evening of October 20th at 7 pm. Rev. Debra and Rev. Marjorie will share meditative music and thoughtful readings to help us center and quiet our minds. Though brief, we hope that you will find...

Bohm Dialogue 10/18/20 – Creativity

From elementary grades to college, cooperative students have higher grade point averages. Personnel directors who work together have fewer job vacancies to fill. And, not surprisingly, cooperation increases creativity. ― Perry BuffingtonInstead of worrying about what...

Saturday, October 17 – Food Drive

This year we are not able to invite the community into FPS for the Harvest Fair. Instead, we will hold a food drive for the Sudbury Food Pantry. Food insecurity continues to increase as our communities struggle with COVID-19 and high unemployment rates. Please join us...

COVID-19 Taskforce Report

As summer ends and we return to the “regular” church year, the COVID Task Force would like to share information related to gathering online, using the Meetinghouse this church year, and the results of the COVID survey. We will continue to gather online until it is...

Bohm Dialogue 9/20/20 – Tribe

Dunbar numbers “What tribes are, is a very simple concept that goes back 50 million years. It's about leading and connecting people and ideas. And it's something that people have wanted forever. ― Seth Godin“I think we are at a new evolutionary stage. We evolved in...

Have A Good Summer!

We had an exciting year in the Religious Exploration program! Many thanks to all of our amazing students, families, and volunteers for making our classes and events so special!

Throughout the fall and winter months, we met at FPS each Sunday for RE classes focused on UU Identity, the Seven Promises, and social and environmental justice. We enjoyed monthly children’s choir classes, and our Junior Youth Group met monthly to engage in a variety of community service and social action projects with our Youth Coordinator. Our older youth enjoyed participating in the OWL program with youth from other local UU congregations.

In March, we transitioned to an online RE program for the safety of our students, and we continued to stay connected to one another through weekly family RE lessons and virtual worship circle meetings.

We will miss all of our students and families this summer, and we look forward to reconnecting in September, when we will begin a new year of learning and exploring together! We wish you all a safe, happy, and healthy summer!
