Class Descriptions

Delegations to the US-Mexico Border | 2019 Trips

Two six day trips: 5/11/19 - 5/16/19 or 11/9/19 - 11/14/19

Join us as we travel to the American southwest to learn about important spiritual and civic issues related to our nation's southern border. Senior Minister Rev. Manish Mishra-Marzetti will personally lead two delegations during 2019 to Arizona, where we will meet with local grass roots organizers as well as travel for a day to Mexico. The two travel opportunities will be in May and November of 2019, with a series of once-a-month seminars leading up to the first trip. We will be collaborating with the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice and an organization called Borderlinks, which specializes in experiential education related to border justice issues.

Teacher Enrichment - Spiritual Practice for Children and Youth (Parents welcome)

Sunday, November 18, 1:30pm - 3:30pm

The prospect of facing a classroom full of kids can be daunting for both new and old teachers alike. We also know that effective teacher training is a lifespan education, a conversation between teachers, students, and parents. These classes are designed to bring teachers together and continue this conversation.

Organized by Mark VanKempen, who has a MA in Education as well as 10 years of classroom experience, these classes will help develop and expand your teaching skills. Each class will have a topic and a co-teacher with knowledge of that topic. These classes will be held regularly on the third Sunday of each month. They are geared toward SGD teachers, but anyone interested can attend.

This class's topic is Spiritual Practice for Children and Youth. Join the Rev. Cassandra Hartley as we explore how to incorporate spiritual practices in our classrooms and at home. Learn how regular use of spiritual practices can help with a variety of classroom issues, such as engagement, management, and more! Helping children and youth develop a "spiritual practice backpack" is also a powerful experience for families to do together at home.

Facilitator: Rev. Cassandra Hartley <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

Details: Sunday, December 16, 1:30pm - 3:30pm. A light lunch will be provided.

Minimum class size - 5    Maximum - 15

UUAA Community of Writers

Recurring sessions on Second Sundays from 1:00pm - 2:30pm: October 14, November 11, December 9, January 13, February 10, March 10, April 14 and May 12. Anyone is welcome at any session.

Adult writers (beginning, intermediate, advanced, potential) interested in an open, supportive community to foster self-awareness, spiritual growth, creative expression, communication, and social witness through the writing arts are invited to join the UUAA Community of Writers.

This group is based on the premise that every person is a writer.  In each session, everyone is invited to share their writings with the group, in confidence and with appreciative feedback. The group’s shared leadership means that any member, following the Community of Writers’ guidelines, may lead a session focused on a theme, purpose for writing, or form of writing, such as poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, personal essay, journaling, blogging, and more. In the past year the Community of Writers held three readings of their original writings to which the congregation was invited. Newcomers are always welcome.
