Deep Listening: Within and Without
Thu 26th Oct & Thu, 30th Nov
11-12:30pm in the Farmhouse Common Room OR 6:30-8pm on Zoom
Much of what we long for—personally and congregationally—is rooted in healthy connection. Listening is at the core of that. Listening to our inner wisdom and insights. Listening to spirit or the still small voice or whatever name we give to that spiritual place of knowing inside our being. Listening, as well, to others—to experiences unlike our own and to those threads where our life stories connect and overlap.
In this 2 session exploration, we’ll try to hone our listening skills. What practices help us not just hear, but listen, not just listen, but understand? How can our deep listening help us in this time of discernment about what might be next for us—personally and collectively?
Join Rev. Shana either in person during the day or on Zoom in the evening. The sessions are:
Exploring UU and Our Congregation
Curious to know more about Unitarian Universalism and what our congregation at First Unitarian is up to in Victoria?
EVENT TIME – Sun 22nd Oct from 12:15 – 2:00pm, Farmhouse Common Room
Light snacks will be served. Please let us know if you require childcare in your reply.
For newcomers, searchers and anyone wanting to learn more, the purpose of these gatherings are two-fold: to share information about events and activities within our community so that you can discern and decide how to get involved, and to introduce you to some of the history, stories, and theology of Unitarian Universalism so that you have a sense of what is unique about our spiritual community and ways we may be similar to other congregations and communities.
This is also a time to connect with others who are new to exploring this community as well as connecting with Rev. Shana and some members of the congregation. We will outline the pathway to becoming a member or friend of the congregation.
Please contact Reverend Shana Lynngood at email@example.com or 250-891-6331 with your questions and wonderings.
