Monday, February 17th

It is pretty commonplace to hear people identify themselves as “Spiritual but not religious”. This week’s topic challenges some of the underlying assumptions of that viewpoint. So, we enter into that dialogue this week via a blog post by Reverend Ann, who is a Unitarian Universalist minister in Alberta, Canada who wrote an interesting defense of being religious and spiritual: “Religious but not (only) Spiritual”. 

Read it ahead of time if you can. It’s concise and won’t take you long to get through. 

Here are a few questions to get things rolling: 

  1. What do you think of when you hear someone describe themselves as being “Spiritual but not religious”? 
  2. What parts of religion make it difficult to be a part of?
  3. How has your spiritual or religious identity changed over the years?

See you on Monday, February 17th, at the Tap House in downtown Rochester.
