UU Principle #3: Care and Feeding of Spirit – July 17, 2022 – Cheryl Morris

UU Principle #3: Care and Feeding of Spirit
Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
July 17, 2022
Lindsay Dunckel
with Gail Johnson Vaughan, Worship Associate

The third principle calls for the acceptance of one another and the encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. UUCM members have a rich array to ways we feed our spirits. Join us as members weave a tapestry in response to the question: “What feeds your spirit?”. Perhaps you will add a few dishes to your spiritual diet.
