Stages of Faith or Spiritual Development

The Rev. Walter Norris, guest speaker

Thomas Garland, worship associate

In 1981, James Fowler, a Methodist Theologian at Emory University, developed the idea of a developmental process of human faith or spirituality. We will consider the different stages that endure throughout a person’s individual life. An example of one of these stages is the last or sixth stage, Universalizing Faith. It is the stage that many never reach. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Mahatmas Gandhi are those who have reached this phase. It is a phase that considers all people important. They strive to create social justice in the world.

Red River UU at the Fest

Oct 1 from 9 – 4 on Main Street

The Denison fall festival is Red River UU’s last scheduled outreach project. We will have a booth at the festival, where we will host a free Halloween costume swap and give away candy and trinkets.

This is part of Adrian Hinman’s series of events that provide free clothing for anyone who needs it. Without specifically who are low income or transitioning, the series of swap events provides a valuable service to the community.

We need volunteers, especially during the afternoon! Please consider signing up to help by contacting Amy or Adrian to let one of us know of your availability.

Need some exercise (and you know you do.😏) Come help set up @ 8:15 or break down at 4:00 pm. Many hands will make the work go easily. Please!!

Chair Yoga Class

meets on Tuesday mornings @ 10 in the Chapel. Open to all who wish to participate, especially newcomers.
