Adult Learning at UU Wellesley Hills is coordinated by the UU Learning Community (UULC). Our charge is to create a program consistent with Unitarian Universalist principles, through which personal growth is fostered and community bonds strengthened. The UULC offers a wide variety of workshops and events led by members, clergy, and friends of our church, as well as outside speakers, who volunteer to share their expertise or interests. The UULC often partners with leaders of our Social Justice initiatives to examine topics of shared concern. Many programs are open to the public.
The UULC welcomes new ideas for Learning while Connecting! Bring yours to our next meeting. Email the church office HERE for more information. Check the Calendar for additions and/or changes to our schedule.
All of our UU Learning Community offerings are free and open to the public. Click HERE to be added to our email list to learn about upcoming programs.

Author visit: Rev. Ana Levy-Lyons on No Other Gods: The Politics of the Ten Commandments
Rev. Levy-Lyons’s 2018 book brings the ancient Ten Commandments into the 21st century, with a voice that is relevant to both secular and religious contexts. She will talk about how the commandments can offer direction for the challenges of our day, including power structures, assaults on the environment, and the ways society undermines a sense of personal worth. Rev. Levy-Lyons is the senior minister at First Unitarian Congregational Society of Brooklyn, where Rev. Kelly was Community Minister prior to her call to Wellesley. Order your copy of Rev. Levy-Lyons book HERE.
