First Ask Why

Rev. Jim Magaw

Any time we start a new undertaking–or even a new cycle or phase of our life–it is good to start by considering why. Why are we doing this? What larger purpose, if any, do our actions serve? Is there an underlying reason what we are doing or are we just going through motions?

Let's talk about why we do what we do. These conversations are a great way to connect with other Sunnyhillers, whether you are a newcomer or a long-time member. Each conversation will include a facilitated discussion about why we exist as a liberal religious community and what our aspirations for this community are. No one will be asked to make a pledge at any of these events.

Please select a date, time, and location convenient to you. If hosts can accomodate children, a note appears by their name in the sign-up at the link above. Parents, if you need to bring children, you will be able to include a note with children's ages so your host will know whom to expect!

Upcoming Events

"Black Lives Matter is a movement and a stance in response to this reality: the United States was built on a legacy of slavery, racism, and oppression that continues to take new, ever-changing forms. To say that "black lives matter" doesn't mean that black lives are more important than other lives, or that all lives don't matter. The systemic devaluing of Black lives calls us to bear witness, even as we acknowledge that oppression takes many intersecting forms." --Unitarian Universalist Association
