Wednesday, April 18th, 6:30pm – Young Souls UU Principles Discussion Group (Rescheduled)
Have you ever wanted to know more about the Principles of Unitarian Universalism? Every third Wednesday of the month we will gather to discuss these basic tenants of the Unitarian Universalist faith. We’ll talk about the actual language of the principle, historical UU perspectives, and our own experiences in relation to the month’s principle. On Wednesday, April 18th, we will cover the 7th principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Snacks and, friendship will be provided. All are welcome, and those who are either new to the community or excited about the faith are especially encouraged to come. Bring your curiosity and join us as we delve into this intentional exploration of UU beliefs! Location: Shaw (Watha T. Daniel) Neighborhood Library- 1630 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20001.
