Religious Exploration for Adults
Membership Classes: Explore the UU history and principles in a series of three classes led by Rev. Barnaby Feder and Marjorie Carsen every Fall and Spring for those exploring membership at CVUUS.
Small Group Ministry provides another opportunity. http://www.cvuus.org/connection/small-group-ministry/
The Five Questions:
Rev. Barnaby will begin teaching a six-class course this month via snail-mail to UU’s incarcerated in prisons around the US via the UU Church of the Larger Fellowship. Every two weeks the prisoners will be getting a packet dealing with one of five great questions:
What does it mean to be human?
How do I know what I know?
Who or what is in charge?
What is my purpose in life?
What is the meaning of death?
There is written homework. For the last class, each prisoner will be writing a “Credo” statement of what they believe about these and other spiritual issues, much the way our young people do for their Coming of Age Program.
If you would like to take this course along with the prisoners, please contact Rev. Barnaby.
If you would like to be a “teaching assistant” helping him compile data about the most common responses from the answers to some of the questions being posed, please let him know asap.”
