Connection Circles offer an opportunity to grow to know one another better. Within their groups, people share insights they have gained and concerns they’ve been struggling with. They realize that they have something in common with everyone, and that they are free to disagree with others as well. They find a non-judgmental atmosphere in which to explore the spiritual dimensions to their lives. In short, it’s a chance to connect in a deeper way with this religious community. There is a $5 registration fee. Please register in advance. Testimonials “It was so nice to get to know other people outside my usual group, especially across generations.” “I felt I could say anything in my group, and even if people didn’t agree with it, I knew that they would still respect me and listen to me.” “I expected to get to know other people better. What I didn’t expect was that I grew to know myself better.” “Now I have people I can really talk to about things that are important in my life.” “I learned something from everyone in my group, about every topic that we explored.” Some Sample Topics Passion What is your life passion?
