Wise Women Gather: Connection and Hope for the Long Haul

We find ourselves living in a difficult political climate, one that few of us saw coming. We need to draw on many resources to care for ourselves and our commmunities. We need to find places of nurture and belonging in order to be justice seekers to stand in solidatiry with thosse who need it, and to resiste the current injustices perpetuated by our own government. Come join the Women's Retreat for some fun, social time, community building and spiritual noursighment...all of which will feed us for the long haul. This is open to all who identify as women.

 

Friday Evening: We will gather on Friday evening at 6 pm at the Reno home of Brooke Walker for a catered dinner. The evening will be purely social, bring a favorite wine to share if you like.  Go home, and sleep in your own bed!

 

Saturday: Join us Satuday 9 am to 4pm at the River Oak Homeowner's Association Clubhouse in Verdi just west of Reno. A lovely setting on the Truckee River with walking trails and peaceful outdoor space.

 

Please contact the office at office@uufnn.org for the registration form. Cost is $15 for Friday only, $35

 

At the UUFNN, our lives are enriched by a spectrum of Adult Faith Development Programs.  These include a bi-weekly Sunday Forum at 9:00 am in the Starr King room, meditation on alternate Sundays at 9:15 a.m., chalice circles, a wide variety of short courses (see also the Adult RE page), and a range of groups open to your participation.

Adult groups provide ongoing connection among people with varied interests, allowing us to enjoy each other, learn from each other and challenge each other to greater spiritual depth. We warmly invite all our congregants, and anyone who wishes to engage in faith develop or wishes to learn about Unitarian Unversalism to sign up and attend our fine programs.

The educational programs stretch and stimulate us as we proceed on our spiritual and intellectual paths. They reflect the range of sources of Unitarian Universalist beliefs:

  • “Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.
  • Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
  • Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to love in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
  • Grateful for the religious pluralism which enriches and ennobles our faith, we are inspired to deepen our understanding and expand our vision.”
