Food For Thought

CUUC Food for Thought

First and Third Sundays
8:30 – 9:45 am 

The Food For Thought group is open to all – we discuss various ways that our faith relates to our relationships, the community, the world….and ourselves. Topics vary at each session, frequently based on brief reading material that will be announced a few days before we meet. Sessions may be facilitated by various members of the group.
Food for Thought is held via Zoom the first and third Sundays of every month at 8:30 am.  We look forward to your participation in these interesting and fun discussions!

Topics

May 16th:  Spiritual Practice and Making a Difference

In his 2017 book The Art of Living, spiritual leader Thich Nhat Hanh writes “With the insights of science and spirituality, we have an opportunity in the twenty-first century to conquer the root causes of suffering in human beings. If the twentieth century was characterized by individualism and consumption, the twenty-first century can be characterized by the insight of interconnectedness, and by efforts to explore new forms of solidarity and togetherness.”

Can we have peace and calm within ourselves and still “get things done”? In next Sunday’s Food for Thought, we will talk about using mindfulness, stillness, and cultivating relationships in our efforts to make positive changes in the world.
