Spiritual Pluralism Project
The Spiritual Pluralism Project is a way to embody that interconnected web of belonging and seeking within a diverse faith community. It invites congregants to bring their whole selves and expect a full welcome. It encourages a deeper seeking and growing in spirit and more profound understanding of and acceptance of one another than is sometimes found within our UU communities.
Many UUs want to draw from more than one path and are enriched by the eclectic nature of many UU congregations. Some want to explore one path deeply and then perhaps another. Others will want to grow in a sustained way from one path. Embracing spiritual pluralism with a project like The Spiritual Pluralism Project increases our choices. It encourages our members and friends to respect and learn from each other as we move toward a more radical hospitality than we have known, deepening our members’ diverse spiritualties while sustaining the unity of our congregation.
Our Fellowship has four spirituality groups. We use a small group ministry model, wherein each group has a chalice lighting, a time for check in, a covenant for how they will be together, and time for sharing. The groups are: UU Buddhist, UU Earth-Based Spirituality, UU Humanist, and UU Mysticism.
UU Buddhist Group
The UU Buddhist Group explores ways that Buddhist teachings can inform our Unitarian Universalist faith, and we practice meditation techniques to help us deepen our spiritual lives.
UU Earth-Based Spirituality Group
The UU Earth-Based Spirituality Group explores a spirituality rooted in our experiences of connection and interdependence with all life. There will be chances for discussion, reflection, experience, learning, creating ritual, and sharing our own stories.
UU Humanist Group
The UU Humanists Group explores religious humanism and its impact and future in Unitarian Universalism.
UU Mysticism Group
The UU Mysticism Group explores various strands of mysticism within UUism, world religions and other sources.
