UUCP offers adult classes throughout the year, typically running weekly for 4-10 sessions. Classes are facilitated by members and occasionally staff, and are designed ourselves or adapted from curricula from other sources. Topics have included the development of Unitarianism and Universalism; exploration of the foundations of other faith traditions, such as Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism; Biblical elements compatible with UU sensibilities; pre-Judeo traditions that treated the female as divine; and Coming of Age for adults.
Fall 2021 Class Schedule
We are offering the following classes via Zoom this fall. Please read about each class, then consider signing up for one or all of them!
6 sessions on Tuesdays at 7 pm AZ time, starting October 5. “Working with dreams” means remembering and exploring the dreams from sleep with an eye to their deeper meanings. Attendees will analyze their own dreams and may share with the group.
Great UU Sermons
2nd Thursday of each month at 3 pm AZ time, starting October 14. Ongoing monthly series studying a classic sermon from an important UU Minister from history, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker.
UU Elevator Speech
3 sessions on Sundays at 12:30 pm AZ time, starting October 17. Also called a “UU soundbite”—how would you describe UUism in a few sentences to an acquaintance or a visitor? Let’s explore ideas and come up with our own versions.
5 sessions on Wednesdays at 7 pm AZ time, starting November 17. We at UUCP come from many different backgrounds, and some of the words we use may have connotations that we now find troublesome. We will compile a list and work it through, exploring old meanings and new interpretations.
