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 2018-2019 Soul Matters topics will be:
Vision (September)
Sanctuary (October)
Memory (November)
Mystery (December)
Possibility (January)
Trust (February)
Journey (March)
Wholeness (April)
Curiosity (May)
Beauty (June)
Groups will form in the fall! Register for Soul Matters by completing this online form

Groups generally meet in person for two hours during weekdays or evenings, with a combination online/ in person option available. 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.)

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.
