Wintertime Notes

We are deep in Wintertime in the New England Region.  About to embark on a new era of our country’s history, even as we continue steadfastly on the path of our UU progress.  For ours is a living tradition, growing and evolving as we all do.

2017 will see us gathering together as we share stories, connect, and lift one another up.

List of events continues to be published.  Keep an eye on our Event’s page. 

For those wishing to coordinate gatherings in their communities and congregations, please let us know and we will assist in promotion and preparations as needed.

Wishing you the Blessings of the New Year!

Autumn Notes

w Fall-Leaves

As we look towards the fast approaching wintertime, we are excited to share that we will be introducing a calendar of events for the New England Region beginning in 2017.

Our goal will be to collaborate and support UU women all over the world, even as we serve the Region we are in.

Check back for calendar updates and events near you!

Autumn 2015 Update

The Spirit of UU Women’s Heart is steadfast and we are eager to see what emerges as we take time over the next 6-12 months to continue to gather information and prepare our web presence more fully.

When we do move forward it will be with clarity about where best we can serve.  There are many things that UU Women’s Heart can do, but what we want to know is what the best ways for us to serve UU Women are.

Always, if you have suggestions, please let us know.

As we more fully grow into our evolving mission, we will place updates on our ABOUT page, as well as maintain our Facebook presence.

Another Beautiful GA

Springtime is upon us and we are delighted with the response we have been receiving – women everywhere want to be connected! What we are discovering is that there are already existing so many UU Women’s groups and gatherings.

We will be present at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly in Portland, Oregon.  Please find us at the UU Women & Religion table!!

About

UU Women’s Heart is in its inception period at present.  Curating sources, resources and council members in needed areas.

The ultimate purpose of UU Women’s Heart is to build community, create opportunities for women to come together to explore their spirituality in a shared experience with other women, and to provide resources for seekers and training for those who wish to step into leadership roles in their home church, in their district, in their region, and beyond.

Our first step is leading a discovery of who, which groups and areas, are doing this well, and supporting and promoting them in ways we can.  The second phase will be to help emerge gatherings and groups where the need is great.

In partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Women’s Leadership Institute (UUWLI) and UU Women and Religion (UUWR), along with other supporting organizations, UU Women’s Heart facilitates curriculum designed to help grow leadership skills of women currently active as leaders, as well as women desiring to step into leadership roles within their congregation, district, region, and within the greater UUA.

Delighted GA!!

What a wonderful way to be connecting with UU Women from throughout the USA, and truly all around the world! Their table was filled with information and works of UU Women, and feminist literature.

There was also a beautiful Red Tent set up, where we spend significant time and made new friends!!
