November 16, 2019, Building the World We Dream About-Learning From the Other Within
(Note change of date due to Thanksgiving!)
Is coming to UUSG a source of comfort and a way to escape the world’s concerns? If we are to truly live the values of this our religious home, we need to explore the ways in which we can improve our acceptance of ourselves and one another as we seek to expand our community.
Drawing from a UUA curriculum “Building the World We Dream About”, this session asks to us to consider how as a community we can be unintentionally marginalizing while wanting to be affirming and encourages us to grow in our capacity for acceptance.
February 22, 2020, The Active and Contemplative Life: Finding a New Rhythm for Our Modern Lives, Sr. Glenna Czachor, OSF
As we face the busyness and distractions of our modern lives, we find ourselves seeking ways to find peace and opportunities for silence. As we experience unpredictable change and challenges of modern life, we seek new coping methods and fresh perspectives that can lead to spiritual growth and physical well-being. We're looking forward to our guest speaker Sister Glenna Czachor from the Tau Center in Wheaton providing guidance in ways to integrate the many elements of our lives with grace, beauty and rhythm.
March 28, 2020, Women’s Wisdom as we Age
April 25, 2020, Dreams as a Spiritual Experience

About Women’s Circle
The goal of the UUSG Women’s Circle is to extend learning and communication, and enhance the opportunities for women within the church to come together around our individual spiritual growth.
Guided by our UU Seven Principles, we come together in a variety of ways that help us explore our spiritual direction using programs and venues that are thoughtful and energizing.
This program is open to all UUSG women 18 years old and above, and we would love to expand our community to the younger women of the church. Intergenerational connections are rich and critically important in today’s world! Having us all together will deepen our individual and shared experience!
We invite anyone who is interested to join the Women’s Circle planning team. If you have thoughts or questions or would like to help, please talk to Trish Beckjord, Julia Friesen, Pam Verner, Rhonda Robinson, or Deb Brod or email us at email@example.com.
