CUUPS Reading Circle

Reading for fun and learning are both gifts for a magical life.  Come join the new CUUP's Reading Circle.  This new circle is an experiment in connection and shared learning.  We will start with a series of discussions around the book, 'Pagan and Earth Centered Voices in Unitarian Universalism'.  This book of 23 essays by some of the most prominent leaders in UU Paganism bring Pagan and  Earth-centered thea/ology to life.  Featuring the writing of both clergy and lay people, this vibrant collection demonstrates the many expressions of nature-based spirituality and the ways they feed the souls of so many. 


This first book will be done as a series of discussions taking place bi-weekly, on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9pm in the Merritt Lounge. Each session will cover 3 - 4 essays.  Please contact Denise Allain with any questions. 


Remaining dates are listed below, with the essays covered.

June 30 - # 12-15

July 14 - #16-19

July 28 - #20-23

Compassionate Communication Group

We are taking a summer break and will start again in September. 

This group meets online using Zoom on the second and fourth Tuesdays at 7pm. Everyone is welcome.  Using Compassionate Communication developed by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, we learn to connect with ourselves and others with empathy and to act in greater harmony with our values. Learning to communicate more compassionately, like speaking a new language, takes practice. If you want to attend this class via Zoom, please contact Suzanne: at for details.
