Class & Open Circle - Introduction to Mythology

  • February 16 · 6:00 PM
  • UU Church of Haverhill

Mythology is the study ancient stories that have been handed down from generation to generation in a certain culture. HISTORY can tell you facts about a people, but MYTHOLOGY shows you the personality, their beliefs, fears, and hopes.

It has been said “One people’s Religion becomes the next people’s Mythology”. Myths began as religious stories, and many of them prominently feature gods and goddesses. While society as a whole may overlook their spiritual significance, there is much we can still learn about ourselves through this study.

As you read myths from other cultures, it also causes you to think of your own culture. What stories are we leaving behind for generations to come? What do we value? What mark are we leaving on an ever-changing world?

Class begins at 6PM with Open Circle to follow.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
