What Moves Us

The Adult Religious Education Committee strives to create a learning environment that motivates our Unitarian Universalist congregation to grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and socially for our good and that of the wider community.

The Adult Religious Education Committee provides opportunities for spiritual growth, fostering connections and commitment to USNH and Unitarian Universalism and developing the foundations for action for justice through a variety of classes, courses, and one-time events.

The Goals & Objectives of the USNH Adult Religious Education Committee are…

  • Partnering with other groups within our congregation to create intentional spaces for sharing and growing our knowledge about spiritual issues, social issues and UU identity.
  • Inviting participation in these intentional spaces by individuals & organizations in the wider New Haven community so as to encourage a social justice and interfaith (including no faith) spiritual discourse among USNH members and those beyond our congregation.
  • Fostering open dialogue and discourse, in these spaces with these participants, to encourage the reflection portion of a praxis  – striving towards greater & more effective action on social justice and interfaith (including no faith) spiritual issues.
