Soul Matters Circles are small groups of 5-8 people who commit to meeting once a month throughout the church year to deepen their connections to each other and to our community through the lens of monthly themes.  The themes are presented as a packet of materials made available to Soul Matters circle members with suggested monthly practices as well as an enormous amount of other resources including quotes, poems, books, music, articles, videos and movies.   All of these become resources for meaningful sharing and conversation in each circle.

There is now an optional monthly Soul Matters Exploratorium to provide a time and place to allow circle members to prepare for their Soul Matters circle meetings, and for anyone interested in finding out what these materials are about.  In addition to the recommended practices, participants will explore the resources in each packet, watching some of the suggested videos, reading some poetry and listening to music.   Most often these are held on the first Monday of the month at 6:30.

If you would like to participate in a Soul Matters Circle, and/or if you have questions about the circle experience or the Exploratorium, please contact Jo Waters at jowaters@hotmail.com or or ‭(530) 414-6941‬, contact Rev. Kevin at minister@uugrassvalley.org or 530-274-1661.
