Lifelong Learning

Do you ever find that the more you learn, the less you feel like you know? Do you encounter obstacles that get in the way of exploring the world in new ways? The term "lifelong learning" is often associated with seniors and post-retirement, but lifelong learning is for all of us, throughout all of our lives. What does it look like, and how do we do it? Let's delve into these topics and more as we explore what it means to be a lifelong learner. Led by members of the UUCR Worship Arts Team. Special music by Justin Furnia, piano.     
 
Jim Blue, a retired physicist/mathematician, has been a member of this congregation since 1979. In his spare time he creates fractal artworks and teaches Shakespeare in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of Johns Hopkins University.
 
Ginny Folsom is a retired teacher and scientist. She has been a member of UUCR since 1994. For many years, she would tell people that she "attended" a Unitarian Universalist church, but for the past three-ish years, she has been proudly stating, "I am a Unitarian Universalist!" She is wondering how this transformation came about.
 
Amy Heath started attending UUCR online in December 2021. UUCR is really her first experience with being introduced to Unitarian Universalism and from the first service she was hooked. Unitarian Universalism has given Amy a new lease on life and she is extremely grateful to UUCR for being the conduit for changing her life for the better. A training specialist/educator by trade, Amy is constantly seeing parallels between UUCR worship and good pedagogy for learning. She looks forward to getting to know all of you and to being a member of the Worship Arts Team.
