The Gift of Renewal

Soul Matters Summer Sharing Circle

The Unitarian Church of Marlborough & Hudson invites you into a time of spiritual reflection with our Soul Matters Sharing Circle. Once a month, in lieu of a formal worship service, we will gather in Union Hall to create safe, sacred space together, in a sharing circle format, so we may explore topics that apply to our daily living, and which contribute to personal spiritual discernment.

**PLEASE NOTE: there will be no coffee hour this morning but you are invited to bring your own beverages to enjoy as we continue our conversation in beloved community!**

Our theme for this month: the Gift of Renewal. In our culture and in our secular lives, the questions we ask about Renewal focus mainly on health (Are you drinking enough water? Are you getting enough sleep?) and work/life balance (Are you making enough time for family, play and rest?). Those are fine questions, but they don’t take us very deep or push us very far. Maybe the way we transform our lives is by changing the questions we ask. 

Questions like:

  • Are you sure it’s your body that’s tired, or could it be your soul?
  • What if “time away” isn’t about restoring ourselves in order to return to our work, but instead about making space to decide if it’s time to reconfigure ourselves and re-imagine what our true “work” is? 
  • Could it be that continual self-improvement is not the path to Renewal but instead compassionate acceptance of who you already are, warts and all?

Join us as we dig in together to renew and refresh the Renewal questions we ask!
