Adult Religious Exploration – Rev. Elli Elliot
Adult Religious Exploration has always included a variety of topics that relate to our Unitarian Universalist quest for a better understanding of ourselves and the world. Because it is such a broad topic, it is open for members of the Fellowship to offer topics of interest. Please contact Elli if you have a topic that you feel would be worthy of exploration.
Social Justice – Sue Reymer
The Social Justice Committee’s mission is to help us be true to our Unitarian Universalist principles and make the world a better place. In the past, we’ve studied and promoted sustainability and climate change solutions, immigration and ethical eating. This year we’ve been studying the prison system.
Social Justice Committee meets on the last Sunday of the month following the service at 12 noon.
