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.

The 2023/2024 Soul Matters Themes:

We will explore the challenges and adventure of…

September: Welcome
October: Heritage
November: Generosity
December: Mystery
January: Liberating Love
February: Justice and Equity
March: Transformation
April: Interdependence
May: Pluralism
June: Renewal

Groups generally meet in person for two hours during weekdays or evenings. If you participated in a group in a previous year and wish to continue, please register again each year. You can also choose to change it up and select a different group this year. (Note registration remains open on our website throughout the year.)

By signing up you’ll be joining with over 190 UU congregations that are part of the Soul Matters Circles, exploring the same small group worship themes.

If you have any questions, please contact the church office, or a Soul Matters facilitator. We welcome your comments and most importantly, your participation.
