Unitarian Universalists

“A Little Amnesia Could Go a Long Way.” The oft-quoted line that “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” has the ring of veracity, but at best is only a half-truth, because our recollections of the past are selective, malleable and subject to manipulation. Of course, amnesia isn’t really an option (or even desirable), but a little less remembering might help us keep the past in the past while freeing up some desperately needed resources to create a better tomorrow.

The UU building on the corner of Broad and Varsity streets in Brevard is wheelchair accessible. Dress may be casual, and visitors of all ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and beliefs are warmly welcomed. Nursery care is available for ages 1-3 at both services. Children’s Religious Education classes are available during the 9:15 a.m. service. The younger class is for ages 4-7 and the older class is for ages 8 and up. Each class is overseen by two adults and emphasizes fun and enriching activities about how to be a better, more caring person and how to make the world a better place for everyone.

Men are invited to join the wide-ranging conversations, which occur each Tuesday at 9 a.m. men’s group. Music lovers will enjoy hearing the Eclectics jam on Wednesday mornings from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Heartfulness meditation is held Saturdays from 5:30-7 p.m., at no charge, for anyone age 15 and older.
