Love Keeps Reaching Out Now more than ever, our country needs to know that the values of justice, equity, and compassion are alive and well in our UU congregations and fellowships. The best way to do this is by living out those values in ways that reach out in love to help those in our communities who are harmed by injustice and inequality. Love Reaches Out workshops are designed to help UU religious communities do just that, by finding the place where, as Fredrick Buechner says, our "deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet."

Living Language  From poetry and sacred scripture to everyday words, language evolves with us.  As our society and culture transform, so do the ways we communicate.  Join us for a deeper look at language, whether in spiritual or secular settings.  All are welcome!

“Laughter: Our Great Healer, & Spiritual Guide.”

Especially when we are feeling shattered, hopeless, or mentally stagnant, laughter can help us to develop our inner spirit and sustain us, no matter what our life circumstances are. It also supports us in living more authentically, joyfully, and with a greater sense of freedom and compassion. Come join in this conversation and laugh with us as we explore how to improve healing, boost vitality, and accentuate mirthfulness while building a deeper connection with others and with all of life.

Jeffry Jeanetta-Wark has been a trainer for over 20 years on how to best manage and prevent stress. He is also a certified Laughter Yoga Leader who has enjoyed leading Laughter Yoga classes for six years in the Twin Cities in such settings as churches, fitness centers, and synagogues in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Stillwater.

"The Holy Shadow."

It is easy to dismiss the elderly - they're old, their minds aren't as sharp, and they aren't comfortable in our modern world.  But whenl you pay attention, they give us many gifts including some important life lessons.  Some times the people we dismiss so easily have the most to offer us.
