Adult Religious Education News

by Whitney Novak

The Adult RE Committee is continuing to put together a great set of continuing opportunities for personal and communal spiritual growth, as well as our ongoing vision and development of adult programming here at First Unitarian of Baltimore.  Here are just a few of our upcoming offerings for Fall 2012, with updated calendar information!

Articulating your UU Faith

In this five-session class, held every Tuesday at 7-9pm from October 2nd to October 30th, participants will explore and work to identify and articulate their understanding of Unitarian Universalism.  This will be offered by our Director of Lifespan Religious Education, Becky Brooks.  

Popcorn Theology

In this monthly potluck guided discussion for youth and adults to be held on third Saturdays, starting September 22nd from 4-7 pm, we will view The Soloist (2009) and discuss how the material presented in the film relates to our first principle. We’ll also share food, fellowship, and ideas.  For the first seven months, we’ll be watching movies related to our Seven Principles. Please come prepared with an appetizer (A-J), Main Dish (K-S), or Dessert (T-Z). Contact Whitney Novak for information.

What’s Your Type?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicatorâ„¢ (MBTI) is the most widely-used psychological instrument in the world. It does not measure mental health, mental illness, intelligence, or ability; it does measure your preferences and the consistent patterns of how you use your mind. This single Saturday session, held on October 27 from 9am-2pm, is designed to: help you identify your preferences and facilitate your understanding of each preference. Registration will be limited to 20 people, so be sure to check our website and the RE Table at Coffee Hour if you’re interested. For more information about the workshop content, contact Helen Hillegass

First At First

Our regularly scheduled groups meeting on first Sundays after church are fabulous, including the Dream Group and Knitting Group, but we are planning to provide more opportunities beginning in September: Music Appreciation and Development (Learn Common Hymns in Sign Language, Basic Sight Reading, and more) and Reading Discussion, where we will have a facilitated discussion of a short piece of pre-reading. Drop-in to your choice of group! Stay tuned to Happenings for more details/specifics on these upcoming offerings.

Our full Adult Religious Education guide for Fall will be out soon. You can register for these classes and events online or stop by the RE table starting Sept. 9 to reserve your place!
