What is a community circle?
Many people come to MDUUC to explore spiritual meaning and make new friends. Community Circles offer opportunities for both exploration and community building. Beginning at several different times throughout the year, Community Circles meet for seven weekly sessions. For the time being, all groups meet virtually via zoom. Once it is safe to meet in person again, some groups will pick up a schedule which meets every other week instead of weekly.
The goal of each Community Circle is to build a healthy and sharing group that depends on the kindness, openness, and willing participation of everyone involved. Participants make a covenant — a sacred promise of honest and meaningful relationship — that deepens the experience while strengthening respect and caring within the MDUUC community.
Community Circles allow participants to share personal stories and perspectives in an atmosphere of respectful listening by the other members. Each circle, usually five to eight members, participates in finding deeper issues to explore, shares insights, and works to develop a true sense of community within MDUUC.
Guided by a facilitator, each structured session focuses on a theme, quotation, or topic to provoke discussion and meaningful expressions of experiences and values.
