What is Soul Matters?

At First Unitarian we are participating in Soul Matters, a nation-wide consortium of more than 150 Unitarian Universalist congregations who share monthly themes for worship, religious education, music, and small group ministry.

Get even more out of the topics by registering for a Soul Matters circle group, and join in going deeper in a small group setting. Your participation makes a difference.

Soul Matters participants receive a monthly packet on the spiritual theme, chock full of uplifting poems, quotes, and live links to YouTube videos, books, music, and much more. You explore these on your own throughout the month, as well as in your group setting. It is suggested you select a spiritual exercise from among three or four in each packet, and that you visit again and again throughout the month.

If you participated in a group last year and wish to continue, please register again this year. You can also choose to change it up and select a different group this year. (Note registration remains open on our new website throughout the year.)
