Our Examined Lives
Using various sources of inspiration, from poems to quotations to music to books, we’ll connect, deepen and expand together as we share about our lives, perspectives, wishes, and dreams.  Meets at Shannon’s Midland home, second Mondays of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.  Maximum seven members.  Facilitator Shannon Sonoras, 989-708-5348 (text or call).

Where Do We Go from Here?
How will we live the rest of our lives with as much quality as possible?  How will we consider the choices and decisions we will probably need to make about our lives in the next 20 or so years?  We’ll discuss and share our feelings about such topics as living with illnesses, various housing options, and end-of-life possibilities.  The group will decide what we want to learn more about and go from there.  Meets third Wednesdays of the month from 4:00 – 5:30 pm.  Facilitator Linda Rector, zoolacie@hotmail.com.

“Cakes for the Queen of Heaven”
How would your life have been different if you had grown up with a female image of the divine? “Cakes for the Queen of Heaven” is a woman-honoring workshop series of feminist theology that examines pre-Judeo-Christian cultures that worshiped the female as divine. More than Goddess 101, “Cakes for the Queen of Heaven” examines important elements of today’s women’s lives:  personal, interpersonal and societal. Meets monthly on scheduled dates in from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.  Facilitator Christina VanPoucker, uuchristinavanp@gmail.com.

The Books We Carry with Us
Informed by the books (fiction or non-fiction) that have informed us on our life journeys, we will share ideas and feelings on up-to-the-minute and age-old topics.  Participants will be invited to suggest books that have influenced their lives.  Meets at Amy’s Midland home, second Tuesdays of the month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.  Maximum eight members.  Facilitator Amy Rogers, 989-750-6989.

A liberal religious haven that cherishes the exploring mind and welcomes all souls.
