The goals of the USH Book Club are: 

(1) to foster communication and community, as do our other small church groups, and

(2) to read fiction and non-fiction that raise issues of interest to Unitarian Universalists  (recognizing that any and all issues are generally interesting to UUs!).


At the beginning of each session, it has been our custom to share and discuss poetry of interest to a participant.

In our discussions we use guidelines for small group meetings as much as possible with the goal being to patiently hear everyone who wishes to share thoughts and to have as many participate as possible.
