It happens in so many ways. A new job. A new family. The birth of a baby. Retirement. Re-location. Re-orientation and Dis-location into a way of being you have never experienced before.

Bob Perkins and I have been exploring how the practice of sailing can 01b89dfcdc11c4b9e0b298560cee8887ffe6a1ce38help us feel our way into situations of change.  Last fall we tried on one small group experience with folks here at University Congregational UCC and this spring are trying on another.

Here’s our invitation – and if this feels like “you” – we’d love to have you consider joining us.

In a small group of 8 this spring, we will be exploring how the practice of sailing can help us enter more deeply into such times of spiritual transformation that is life in “uncharted waters”. The challenge and opportunity. The fear and disorientation. The hope and excitement. To listen for and discern where God is calling and at work.

The first hour of each class will be spent on the water and a second hour in small group conversation about the particular changes in our own lives. No sailing experience is available.

Space for this small group is limited. If we’re unable to offer you a spot in this class, do know that we expect to offer it again in the future. Please send us a paragraph on the “uncharted water” you are experiencing today, and why you are interested in taking part in this small group. Members will be expected to attend each session and to have read, First You Have to Row and Little Boat.

Cost: $75 (Due at the first class. Scholarships are available.)
