First Sunday in Lent


Labyrinth and blue sky on a late winter day...or is it early spring?
Robins were sighted in the UMA this morning!

The first Southern Cayuga Wider Parish Lenten Series program takes place at the UMA:

Sunday, February 18: Spirituality through Technology

ALL ARE WELCOME
Soup is served at 5pm.
The presentation begins at 5:45pm and concludes by 7pm.

Occasionally we hear the refrain, “I’m not religious but I am spiritual.” This can become an offering of understanding for not attending church. Oftentimes these same proponents are deeply engaged in communication forms utilizing the newly minted technologies of social media: Snapchat, FB, Twitter, Instagram, and others. A reframed understanding of social media can assist in experiencing the spiritual with the consequence of discovering a deeper relationship between religion and spirituality.
