"Serving with Grace,” at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City
|Sunday, May 01, 2022, 10:00am
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City board members will share a new perspective on service. While the focus is on the UU Fellowship, this topic is relevant to all who seek to elevate their community service and avoid burnout. Those attending will also have the opportunity to review their own interests and to learn from others.
This program is based on the book, "Serving with Grace: Lay Leadership as a Spiritual Practice" by Rev. Erik Walker Wikstrom. In it he discusses making the practice of leadership a spiritual practice, too. This can apply to non-church organizations, as well. Volunteers, for example, who work in a food bank or clean up a children’s park can find this work to be transformative.
“The business part, those volunteers who keep us going, of our Fellowship can be as spiritually transformative as our Sunday programs, when we choose to see it as one of our spiritual practices,” said Carol Morrison, Board President.
We may have the back door open and ceiling fans going, so please bring a jacket to stay warm if needed. There are speakers on the patio so people can sit outside and still hear the service.
UUFSC Safety Protocol (pursuant to our most recent UUA Guidelines):
We will not be serving food or drinks in the building until further notice. Masks will still need to be worn in the building at all times. We will continue to serve refreshments on the patio, weather permitting. Visitors are always welcome.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City is a diverse group of religious independents seeking knowledge, spiritual sustenance, fellowship and opportunities for service to others. Our programs encompass humanism, liberal Christianity, earth-based spirituality, Buddhism and many other traditions.
