Sunday Morning Discussion Group

Date: weekly beginning January 12th

Time: 9:00 am

Location: Founders House

Facilitator: Cecil Huey

Cost: varies, approx.. $50 for hardcover editions of books, less for Kindle. Copies will be available to borrow from the UUFC library.


We will begin 2020 with A Reflection: South Carolina, the Jim Crow South, and Judge J. Waites Waring. Those drawn to the side of social justice might find a hero in the story of Judge Julius Waites Waring of South Carolina.  At great personal cost, Judge Waring became a central and controversial figure in the mid-twentieth century racial turmoil in our state.  His model is as inspiring as the matters he confronted were horrifying and consequential. Over a few-week period we will wend our way through the story of Judge Waring, its illumination of the Jim Crow South, and the legacy of the times.  If Judge Waring is unknown to you, expect to be at once astonished, dismayed, gratified, and inspired.

Building Your Own Theology, Part 1

Dates: 6 Wednesdays, January 15th , 22nd. and 29th, and February 12th, 19th, and 26th

Times: 4:00 to 5:30 pm

Location: Founders House

Facilitators: Rev. Terre Balof and Holley Ulbrich

Min: 6  Max: 10


Description: Are you ready to tackle the fourth principle, a free and responsible search for truth and meaning? As a Unitarian Universalist, we don't think you want to just accept ready-made, second hand answers to questions of God (or no God), human nature, good and evil, church community, and life's purpose and meaning. In this five week class we explore as a group some possible answers to life's big questions, participants choose those that speak to them or dream up their own.  It's a craft class in soul craft or mind craft in which you will end up with a product--a credo, or your personal statement of what you believe to be true for you.
