"There is a quality of listening that is possible among a circle of human beings, who by their attentiveness to one another create a space in which each person is able to give voice to the truth of his or her life. There is the miracle of authentic narrative, made possible by listening that holds still long enough to let the truth be told. Where there is this kind of listening and speaking, a new kind of community is born - a community of life."

About Small Group Ministry
Unitarian Universalism is about connection. The All Souls Small Group Ministry program provides the space to deepen your spirituality and broaden your sense of community. We explore concepts and ideas that help us go deeper; that help us explore the many questions with which we live. The Unitarian Universalist religious community is a precious gift. Within it, we find values and questions that are rarely encountered elsewhere in our lives. Values and questions that push us, ground us and remind us who we most deeply are. Give yourself the gift of time to play with powerful questions and build life changing relationships with other All Souls community members. Each month we come together with purpose: to bear witness, to listen to each other and to ourselves, to the silences as well as our words and what lies behind our words.
How does it work?
Each small group meets regularly from October through May. Trained, dedicated, caring members of the congregation will facilitate these sessions. Each month you will be asked to explore the material and dig deep into a theme through exercises, readings, and videos.
Special Note: Our children will be exploring these same themes in Chapel this year and also have the opportunity to explore the themes during the second hour in a class called Soul Matters. They will engage with the themes though activities, special speakers, art and social action.
