Cedar Lane is thrilled to announce the start of Beloved Conversations (registration link coming shortly,) a powerful pathway for spiritual growth and relationship building that advances our dream of beloved community. This transformative curriculum is grounded in spiritual practice and our UU faith. If you have been craving deeper connection and are yearning to develop meaningful connections, or are interested in becoming a leader at Cedar Lane, you should consider registering for this program before all spots are filled!

Beloved Conversations is a learning laboratory for how to live healthily in a multiracial, multicultural, theologically diverse community, and how to work for a racially just world, both within and beyond our congregation. Led by Dr. Mark Hicks, Meadville Lombard Professor of Religious Education, and Multicultural Ministry Consultant Julica Herman-De La Fuente. Beloved Conversations opens with a 1.5-day immersive retreat at Cedar Lane (Fri & Sat, January 18-19, 2019), followed by eight 2-hour sessions, every other week, in small cohorts of 10-15 people. Our initial retreat will be shared with our sibling congregation in Fairfax to increase the depth at which we can explore what it means to be beloved community.

Your participation is invited and encouraged and space is limited to just 50 slots.

For more information, contact the Rev. Katie Romano Griffin, your Assistant Minister.
