UU Wellspring is a 10-month spiritual deepening program created by UUs for UUs. This year, the Sources group will be offered via Zoom, on Tuesday evenings.
Begun in 2005, the UU Wellspring program celebrates the depth and breadth of our rich religious tradition. Over the years, UU Wellspring has expanded and now offers four years of programming: Sources (the revised first-year program, described below), Spiritual Practices, Deep Questions, and Faithful Actions.
All UU Wellspring programs incorporate five elements designed to balance knowledge of UU history and theology with personal spiritual practice and engagement with the world. The five components of UU Wellspring that participants agree to are:
- A commitment to daily spiritual practice
- Participation in a small-group community
- Individual work with a spiritual director monthly
- Readings and resources for knowledge and reflection
- Commitment to live out our values in the world
Our current curricula include our foundational program, Sources, along with three advanced programs: Spiritual Practices, Deep Questions, Faithful Actions and Sacred Arts. A youth program is in development and will be released in 2020 with the support of a Unitarian Sunday School Grant.
