To be fully human is to be empathetic. As humans, we are hardwired for empathy. However, it is easy to lose touch with that part of ourselves in the turbulent political, social, racial, and religious climate of today. Through a perspective of humanism and neuroscience, we can restore, feel, and express the kind of empathy that fosters compassion, patience, and understanding.
10:00 First Hour
Fourth Principle Discussion Group
Empathy is Natural
Zach Burns, speaker
Empathy is natural to being human. In the first hour we will learn about brain function as it relates to empathy and how lifestyle, stress, and trauma impact one’s ability to feel, express, and accept empathy.
Heeding The Call: Qualities of a Justicemaker
This curriculum, provided by the UUA, helps cultivate qualities in youth participants that allow them to not only become more aware of injustices around them, but also to begin working toward a more just world.
Through stories, role-plays, and discussions, youth will explore topics from courage to cooperation, all within a social justice framework.
There will be certain Sundays (TBD) that youth will participate alongside adults in the 1st Hour 4th Principle Forum for inter-generational RE.
Spirit Circle is a weekly fellowship of those that wish to focus on our personal relationships with our families, nature, our Higher Power, the hereafter, church and each other. All are welcome.
