    Description: In the final decades of the 19th century, a radical band of pioneering women ministers, defying their critics and the Unitarian establishment; founded, nurtured and grew dozens of congregations throughout the Midwest.  These fiercely independent, heroic and largely forgotten women had a singular passion for liberal religion. How might we hold on to our UU heritage that is often plagued by a conspiracy of forgetfulness?

    Neighborhood Connections Ministry

    Description: By simply being present with and in relationship with those in our community who are not necessarily like “us,” participants in this course will have the opportunity to experience and reflect upon the effects such relationships have on their lives.


    Participants will agree to volunteer their efforts (8hrs/month) at a non-profit or social service agency in their local community. A list of potential agencies and their contact information will be provided but each participant may arrange their own volunteer service as their spirit calls them.


    Once a month, participants will meet to reflect on their experiences.
