The Unitarian Slayer
There is still space for you to participate in the learning circle The
Unitarian Slayer, starting September 28, 2005 at UUFR and running
through February 15, 2006. Sessions will be Wednesday night from 7:00 to 9:30
in the music room on the second floor of Fellowship Hall. Child care will be
available. Facilitator: Diane Wilson.
Each week, we will discuss love, forgiveness, courage, integrity, sacrifice,
loyalty, loss, and spirituality, based on the television series Buffy the
Vampire Slayer. Buffy fans know that the show encompasses much more
than simple humor or genre horror; its core issues and storylines are based on
family and relationships, spiritual journeys, and personal growth. While the
stories are based on fantasy, Buffy always stays true to emotional and
moral realism, and the series draws from many religions and philosophies. What
can we learn about the principles and values of Unitarian-Universalism from the
If you haven't yet seen Buffy, this is a great opportunity to learn why
this show has earned such a strong following. We will view two episodes each
week, and background will be provided for those not familiar with the series.
You do not need to commit to attending all 18 sessions; schedule conflicts are
part of modern life. However, I hope that you will be able to commit to
attending at least half of the course.
