What are Chalice Circles

Chalice Circles offer the gift of spiritual connections. We do that (1) by listening deeply and intensely to each other without responding, (2) by holding still and offering space for each person to share without questions or challenges, and (3) by holding out and holding up, by offering gratitude and noting meaningful connection to others about what they share.

Soul Matters is a theme-based curriculum used by UU congregations nationwide, and provides content for youth programs, worship services and small group ministry programs such as Chalice Circles. Rev. James and Rev. Sasha base at least one monthly service on a Soul Matters theme, and it is used in our Religious Education program.
