Adult Religious Education at First Unitarian

Transforming Power Workshop   
Perhaps you were moved by the Inherent Worth and Dignity service presented by Omaha Alternatives to Violence Project or participated in a Making Friends with Conflict mini-workshop and want to learn more.  During each we mentioned AVP's transforming power concept.  At the heart and soul of AVP, it's the power in each of us to transform violent and destructive situations into liberating and constructive experiences.

To explore how transforming power lives in you and others, Omaha AVP is offering a free 3-day Transforming Power workshop on February 4, 11 & 25 from 9-4 in the Common Room (attend all 3 days). 

 

We do appreciate a $25 donation towards food/lunches.

Adult RE Class! Building Your Own Theology (BYOT)

Sunday afternoons, 1:00-2:00pm (8 workshop series)

Dates: Feb 5, Feb 19, Mar 5, Mar 19, April 2, April 16, Apr 30, May 7

Facilitated by: Christina Strong, DLRE and Denise Allain

 

Unitarian Universalists are accustomed to speaking out and sharing their diverse views, but sometimes we find it difficult to say just what our individual thologies are. This class will explore participants' evolving individual and collective theological perspectives by reflecting on personal religious experiences, raising questions of ultimate reality, ethos, religious meaning, human nature, the sacred or holy, good and evil, suffering, community, authority, death, immortality and our UU Principles. The aim of the course is to come to a deeper understanding of "where we stand" as individuals and as a community of seekers. Participants will develop their personal credo through writing-based reflection and theological conversation. 

 

Enrollment:  Minimum 5, Maximum 12. Slots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, with the minimum of 5 needed by Feb 3 to make this a go. To register, please drop an email to admin@firstuuomaha.org with subject line "BYOT" or call the church office during business hours. For questions or to see the syllabus, please contact Christina Strong (dre@firstuuomaha.org). Childcare may be requested via childcare@firstuuomaha.org

During our practices, we learn to transform the thinking, language and moralistic judgments that keep you from the enriching relationships and start to resolve conflicts with more ease, learn to ask for what you want in ways that ensure you’ll receive it, begin to hear the true needs of others with less effort, strengthen your personal and professional relationships and start living to your full potential.

Everyone is welcome. No prior experience needed.
