Family Worship: Mothers and other Magical Creatures: Please join us in the chapel for this family centric, 20 minute interactive service.
This month, Embodiment: In our Worship services we will be exploring the theme of embodiment, the shape of ourselves, the work we do with our hands, the relationships we form, the physical realities of our world and our participation in it.
Religious Education Morning: Butterfly and Cocoon: Like butterflies we need to become strong enough to fly. If the weather is fine, we will be out of doors today, if not planting strawberry seeds inside. At any rate, please dress for the mess.

GROWTH AND LEARNING:
Soul Collage May 25th 7:00 PM Winchester Unitarian Society: Listen to the Whispers of your Soul
Access your inner voice of wisdom and guidance in this playful, yet purposeful, facilitated practice. It is a gentle, accessible, and surprising tool for unlocking emotional obstacles and stepping into the most authentic expression of yourself. It is a path for artist and non-artist alike to explore self and spirit through the non-judgmental mirror of Soul Collage. Soul Collage facilitator Rebecca Kelley-Morgan leads the group. Please RSVP to Betsy Bowles at email@example.com to reserve your spot – group size will be limited.
2017- 2018 Programming: It’s never too soon to start thinking about next year. We’re inviting input and feedback on possibilities for next year’s programming. Is there something you’d like more of? Less of? Let any member of the Growth and Learning Committee know, or send along comments to Rebecca Kelley Morgan at Rebecca@winchesteruu.org
Next Growth and Learning Meeting June 14th , 7:00 PM Michelsen Room
Looking Ahead: Winchester Unitarian Society will be hosting a Thoreau Bicentennial Celebration this fall, as part of the Walden Woods statewide Thoreau Read. We have many Thoreau readers among the congregation, and we’d love to hear from you about what might be accessible and thought provoking. Please be in touch with Rev. Heather or Rebecca Kelley Morgan.
