Discerning one’s bliss, requires creating a “sacred space” — a space for uninterrupted reflection and unrushed creative work. If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time. We will explore this concept of finding and following your bliss.

Winter Institute (WI) is all of the fun and socializing of SI without the hectic schedule.
There are frosty outdoor activities like sledding, hiking and cross country skiing. For those who choose to stay in their slippers all weekend, there is a beautiful lodge with its many cozy corners and fireplaces. The pool and hot tub are truly a wintertime treat. There will be daily morning and evening casual worship services, morning water aerobics (after worship,) pre-dinner cocktail hour in the hospitality suite, and breakfast and dinner meals are included with registration. There are fellow UUs always ready to play board games or to join in the community jigsaw puzzle. We have wonderful community worship services and great conversations.

Our “New to UU” classes cover everything you wanted to know about the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent in particular and Unitarian Universalism in general, but didn’t know where to go or whom to ask. Well, maybe not everything, but we try to give you an overview, a starting point ~ some history of both, some organizational details. Come join the conversation. And, if you’re curious about membership, we will help to clarify what membership in UUCK entails.
Part 1 will be on Sunday, February 14, from 9-11 am. Part 2 will be on Sunday, February 21 from 9-11 am. You may attend one or both, although attendance at both is encouraged. Different topics will be covered in each. We will gather at the Annex, the yellow house next to the church.
