Sunday 1 March, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Wonder

Albert Einstein said,” The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical…….he who can no longer stand wrapt in awe and wonder is as good as dead”

Our theme will be wonder. What is it; is there a place for it in what can seem at times, a not so wonderful world?

Led by Sheila Cass. All welcome.

Sunday 23 February, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Being the best version of myself that I can be

We live in a changing world. Some of us have regrets, disappointments, ambitions. Time is full of demanding voices calling us one way or the other. There are things we want to achieve, talents we want to encourage. People often expect more from us than we feel able to give, or we have a lot to give, but no idea of the many ways we can offer ourselves. We may feel we want to be more involved, or tired and we want to do less.

Join us to celebrate the best version of ourselves we can become. The exciting thing is we can begin right away, whatever our age.

Led by Eve Cunningham. All welcome.

Sunday 9 February, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Anger

“I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe; I told it not, my wrath did grow.” (William Blake, “A Poison Tree”.)
Anger, on both a personal and a national level, can often be a real problem, as the current political scene makes plain. But how should we deal with anger – suppress it, transcend it, or just be honest about it?
In Blake’s poem, when he “told it not”, his anger grew and grew into a “poison tree” with predictable consequences – but just speaking our minds can often be just as bad.
We shall look at various strategies, from diplomacy to meditation, in the hopes of finding a better way of coping with our wrath.
Led by Mike Rutter. All welcome.

Sunday 2 February, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Kindling the sacred flame

“It is easier to gaze into the sun, than to face the mystery of God. Such is its beauty and its radiance. God says: I am the supreme fire; enkindling every spark of life.” Hildegard of Bingen

In celebration of the Celtic fire festival of Imbolc and the Christian festival of Candlemas, we will explore the sacred symbolism of fire, in particular the Unitarian chalice.
Led by Laura Dobson.
All welcome.
