Personal Theology Alex PappasSundays, September through May at 9:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room.

The Personal Theology program was founded by Bernard Loomer, former Dean of the Divinity School at University of Chicago and leader in Process Theology. It was led by Martha Helming from 1991 to 2013. Participants listen to and engage with theological and spiritual leaders, as well as present their own topics and spiritual journeys. Seminars pursue the UU values of drawing inspiration from diverse traditions and deepening the spiritual life. This program is supported by contributions from the audience.

Personal Theology Committee: Gloria Merrill (Chairperson), Anne Wardell,  Barbara Rockhold, Dick Sherman, and John Maes (treasurer). Mac Lingo, Dwight Merrill, and Charlie Wright, audio technicians.
