2020, our "Year of Discovery!" Throughout this year, programming throughout First Church will explore these three questions...
  • How do we want to be together?
  • How do we hold one another?
  • How do we sustain ourselves?
Here is what Adult Faith Development has planned!



Fourth Friday Tad Talks

Like a Ted Talk, but a tad different... Our church, and indeed our city, is filled with experts. Join us for this monthly program, brought to you by Adult Faith Development, to hear one of these experts share their wisdom a la Ted Talks. With 15 minutes allocated to presentation, and 15 minutes allocated to moderated discussion, this is a quick and easy way for adults and youth to live into our third principle: "We're free to learn together!" Please note, all sessions will be recorded, and posted on First Church's YouTube channel for later viewing.

For November: It's that time of year again, we are all Preparing for Seasonal Change.  Although winter is considered a time for staying warm and turning inward with indoor activities, this year we have already been through months of “sheltering in place” and people may be apprehensive about fewer pre-pandemic coping strategies for winter.  This Tad Talk* will address struggles with winter’s cold temperatures and fewer hours of daylight. We’ll discuss how indoor activities of winter can be opportunities for self-reflection or spiritual practices, learn how winter is celebrated in other cultures, and share ideas on facing the challenges of winter during the Covid-19 pandemic. Prior to the Tad Talk, enjoy listening to a reading of the children’s book FREDERICK by Leo Lionni. Here’s the YouTube link: https://youtu.be/qd2zaLyaCJM

Please note, this Tad Talk will be offered on Friday, November 20, 2020 from 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM.  This is the THIRD Friday of November.  While Tad Talks are usually offered on the fourth Friday of the month, this month the date has been changed so as to not conflict with the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Additionally, you should be made aware that per request from this month's speaker, this Tad Talk WILL NOT be recorded.

Register now by clicking on the flyer below.

*Tad Talk, like a Ted Talk, but a tad different.

Preparing for Seasonal Change

Spirit in Practice

Seeking spiritual grounding during these turbulent times? Spirit in Practice was created to help Unitarian Universalists develop regular disciplines, or practices, of the spirit—practices that help them connect with the sacred ground of their being, however they understand it. Spirit in Practice affirms religious diversity while seeking unity in our communal quest for meaning and wholeness.

This program will be offered on the Second Saturday of every month, starting in October, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM via zoom (connectivity information to be sent before each session).  Consistent attendance is not required.  Register once, attend when able!  Just click the flyer below to register.

First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati Presents


Widening the Circle of Concern

This summer, the UUA's Commission on Institutional Change (COIC) released their report titled, "Widening the Circle of Concern." Join us one evening a month to discuss the themes presented in the report.

This program will be offered the third Wednesday of every month, starting in October, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM via Zoom.  Register by clicking on the flyer below.  Again, consistent attendance is not required, but it is encouraged.  Register once, attend when able!  Connectivity information will be sent the morning of each session.

Widening The Circle of Concern


The Wi$dom Path

Through this program participants will build awareness of their own “money story” and explore their own attitudes and experiences with money. They will explore the ways in which money connects us with others, including issues of classism and economic justice as well as money issues in congregational life, then delve into ways to align faith, values, and a sense of a life calling with their financial ways of being.

This program will be offered over 5 consecutive Saturday mornings, 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM, starting January 30, 2021. Registration required (zoom link will be sent morning of the first session). Register by now by clicking on the flyer below.
