Hands around a flaming chalice

The Sunday Circle is a lay-led group and gathers from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. each Sunday.   This group is less formal and smaller than the 10:30 service, and can be a good place for newcomers to connect and feel welcome.

We typically gather in the UUCM Fireside Room—but in order to be connected while socially distant, we have also evolved a Zooming Circle.  

While we all adapt to current events we have departed from our previous schedule of topics and leaders and re-purposed our group to simply be a place where, each week, we can
   Connect in Community
   Share Humor and Hope
   Support Creativity and Curiosity

A volunteer leader will welcome participants, light a chalice, and offer a reading and topic for the day, often one that has evolved from the previous week’s conversation.  We will have a few minutes of silence for contemplation, and then take turns responding with thoughts or asking related questions.  We take time for shared joys and concerns and then continue with the dialogue.

Whose shoulders do you stand on?  What do you stand for?
Janice Prochaska will guide us in a conversation inspired by these questions in Amanda Gorman’s powerful Inauguration Day Poem.

Is life a problem to be solved—or a reality to experience?
Soren Kierkegaard  posits “Life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.”  Come try out your own metaphors and listen to others (bowl of cherries, one thing after another)—we could make a long list.  What do our 7 Principles suggest and what works for you?
