SACRED HARP SINGING Date: 2nd and 4th Sunday every month Time: 2-4 pm Location: Room 1 Facilitator: Dan Harper Contact: Dan Harper ([masked]) Join the democratic and inclusive American song tradition of Sacred Harp music, one of the oldest ongoing music traditions in the United States. Rolling Stone magazine talks about “the soaring magnificence of Sacred Harp.” National Public Radio calls it “full-body singing,” and radio station KALW says it’s a “communal experience.” Come find out for yourself. Beginners are always welcome, and loaner books are available.
SUNDAY FORUM Date: Every Sunday Time: 9-10:15 am Location: Fireside Room Facilitator: Susan Owicki Contact: Susan Owicki ([masked]) The Forum is a public discussion group in the round. All are welcome. The topics are chosen about a month in advance by the attendees. See http://www.uucpa.org/connection/affinity-groups/forum/ for future topics. A moderator will first provide background information. Group members provide additional perspectives, opinions, extensions, tangents, counter positions, and related experiences in turn. Audio enhancement provided. This Forum has been running for over a half century.
Sunday Meditation Date: Every Sunday beginning April 8, 2018 Time: 10-11am—with entrance and exit possible at 10:20 Location: Church Library—entrance and exit only via side door (across from bathrooms) Coordinator: Eric Bier This meditation opportunity is open to all UUCPA participants. Those who already meditate regularly may use it as a time and place to pursue their regular practice. Those for whom meditation is new may use this as a way to try it out, under the guidance of an experienced fellow UU. In order to make this meditation time accessible to people with other Sunday morning commitments (e.g. The Forum and choir), it will have a built in break at 10:20 to allow quiet entrance and exit for participants who need to do so.
Come with a poem you have long enjoyed or one that seems to defy understanding. We will survey poems in different forms and eras, and learn about poets' lives and cultural backgrounds. We'll read, listen, discuss, celebrate, and sometime - if you like - try writing our own poems
