Spiritual Pilgrimage to Cali Colombia

Why Cali, Colombia?

Cali, Colombia has a rich history, historic religious sites, a salsa dancing scene like no other, and it is a bustling city nestled among picturesque beauty. This trip will help attendees develop a deeper sense of community, theology and spiritual resilience. It will also provide a fertile environment for deep reflections on what it means individually and collectively to experience our faith globally.

What Will The Trip Be Like?

This experience is designed with community and spirituality at its center. We will engage in prayer at meals, spiritual excursions, daily meditation and reflection, Spanish language immersion, small group experiences, cultural activities, communal meals, worship and dancing. We will also emphasize joy in our time together.

Dates of the trip are July 12 - 20, 2020.

How Can I Learn More?

Join us for an informational meeting to be held at on February 10, 2020 via Zoom. A draft itinerary will be available then! Contact Rev. Katie Romano Griffin, Associate Minister of Cedar Lane UU Church: kromanogriffin@cedarlane.org for details and Zoom info.

REVOLUTIONARY LOVE: Toward A More Perfect Union

For the last 13 years, Middle Collegiate Church in New York City has been hosting a phenomenal conference dedicated to multifaith, multiracial justice organizing. More than half of the participants are usually UUs, who come back inspired for the work in their congregations and communities. The 2020 conference theme is Toward a More Perfect Union, and it’ll be at All Souls Church in DC this April 24-26. With inspiring movement-builders like Ruby Sales, Valarie Kaur, angel Kyodo Williams, Brian McLaren, Linda Sarsour, and William Barber, we will gather to learn, strategize, and share best practices for taking love and justice out into the streets in this critical year. There is a significantly discounted registration rate of $239 for local UUs ($160 off) that expires February 14. Visit http://revolutionaryloveconference.com and click the “Enter Promotional Code” link from the page where you select number of tickets. If you have questions about the conference, contact Rev. Rob Keithan, Minister for Social Justice at All Souls, rkeithan@allsouls.ws.
