For this coming month of October, our theme is Formation. The Rev. A. Powell Davies wrote, “Life is just the chance to grow a soul.” When we come together – either in worship, Journey Groups, choir practice, fundraising events, and even committee meetings – we are forming together. In our coming together, we chose how we are forming and growing our own soul, and also the soul of our spiritual home at the UUFH.
Last month and in the months to come, Rev. Jude invited us to explore spiritual practices – our theme of formation calls us to dig deeper into that call. If would want to make a commitment to the formation of your soul, consider joining a monthly discussion group – called Journey Groups. Email Greta Jo Seidohl at to get connected. If you want to explore our theme further, check out the Touchstones Journal (
Rev. Ralph Helverson wrote “We have religion when we have an abiding gratitude for all that we have received, including our own life and a universe to sustain it….” In October, may we be filled with gratitude for how our UUFH community has formed our souls, and renew our commitment to fostering, forming, and supporting the soul of UUFH in return.
