Description
"Active Faith in Our Times” - UCCI Virtual Offering

Four 90 minute online sessions on Thursdays
with Rev. Winton Boyd, Tammy Boyd and Rev. Ellen Green

June 25 from 9 a.m - 10:30 a.m.
July 16 from 9 a.m. -10:30 a.m.
July 30 from 9 a.m. -10:30 a.m.
August 13 from 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

In recognition that hosting the Active Adult Adventure Retreat in-person camp in September is uncertain, we will be offering some of the content intended for the Active Adult Adventure Retreat throughout the summer. THIS VIRTUAL OFFERING IS OPEN TO ANYONE. Participants are asked to commit to at least 3 of the 4 sessions.

Revs. Winton Boyd (formerly of Orchard Ridge UCC in Madison, UCCI President) and Ellen Green (Lynnhurst UCC in Minneapolis) will offer distinct segments around the theme “Active Faith in Our Times.” We’ll be drawing on the wisdom of Fr. Richard Rohr (Falling Upward), Serene Jones (Call It Grace), Resmaa Menakem (My Grandmother’s Hands), and others. Each session will include some content presentation with breakout groups for discussion and reflection. The sessions will begin and end with some simple music presented by Tammy Boyd.

We will invite a free will offering as a way to support UCCI during this difficult time of cancelled events and closed camps. If we are able to go ahead with the in-person camp, we will go further with the same content.
