Alison Vernon, Director of Music at Countryside Church UU, Palatine, IL shares about her online experience with UU Wellspring:
“As a member of my church staff, I rarely have the opportunity through church services to just sit and receive/absorb/contemplate/feel. I am constantly monitering what’s going on now and what’s supposed to happen next and my part in all of that. Being a part of the Wellspring program has allowed me to “feed my soul”. Through the readings and discussions I can be with my own thoughts, truly listen to others without worrying about what is happening or going to happen next. It is quite luxurious to have a time already set aside that I have committed to study, think, listen, speak ….a time just for me.”
Voices of UU Wellspring
“UU Wellspring is greatly awakening spirit in the participants, who are in turn testifying to that experience in both word and deed in our congregation, and thus further awakening spirit throughout our congregation. Delightful!” View supporting churches Check out our Facebook page!
Janine Larsen, Director of Ministries at University Unitarian Church notes:
“UU Wellspring helped University Unitarian Church in its blossoming as a congregation supported by noticeably better educated and thoughtful UU religious leaders. The program has been deeply fulfilling and clarifying to participants over our years of enrollment. Program alumni are more connected to their UU identity, and continue to grow through their enduring spiritual practices of many kinds.”
