February 17: Stages of Faith

Presenter: Jen Blair

Many people attending Unitarian-Universalist fellowships were raised in other religions, so much so that Unitarian-Universalism is often referred to as a sanctuary for religious refugees.  Let’s explore the natural stages of faith development into adulthood and discuss what potential benefits and drawbacks can come from gathering together with others who are in a variety of similar yet different phases of faith and transitional faith stages.

February 10: “The Triumph of Trust Over Experience”

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

What does it mean when we say we trust someone or something? What does it mean when we say we trust in God, or in the Universe? Does it mean we think things will always go our way? What happens in our hearts and souls when things do not go our way, especially in matters of deep import? Rev. Greene will reflect on these questions, and on how trust relates to faith and hope.

January 20: “Daughterhood”

Presenters:
Kacee O’Conner, Debra Smith,  and Emmie Schlobohm

Three daughters, Kacee O’Connor, Emmie Schlobohm, and Debra Smith, members the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, will share how they use their Unitarian Universalist principles to meet the challenge when they suddenly find themselves caregivers to their aging mothers. Some days they struggle living up to their Unitarian Universalist principles when it comes to taking care of their mothers’ emotional needs and some days they don’t do a good job of taking care of themselves.

Often, they are befuddled by the emotional whirlpool that living so close to someone who is nearing the end causes. How can they help each other? They are working with others to form communities that offer support, resources and sometimes just evenings of whining with wine. These three women will share how they use their Unitarian Universalist principles to help navigate this challenge.
