Myth: Goddess Group is a pagan circle, and I’m not into rituals.
Response: Goddess Group is a discussion group with a primarily educational focus. The beliefs of our group members are as broad as you’d expect at UUFP. One or more of us will research a topic related to goddesses and their role in cultures throughout many locations and times. Sometimes the topic is a specific goddess. At other times it may be an area of the world, or an aspect of nature, or a characteristic common to many deities. Whatever the topic, we discuss goddess stories and how they relate to our world history as well as to our lives today. Sound a bit dry? Believe me, it’s not. We share, discuss, debate (politely, of course), and laugh. We walk away from each group learning something new, and we think you will as well.
So fear not, friends. You are always welcome at Goddess Group. We meet the first Sunday of the month at 12:30 p.m. in the UUFP Office building, and we’ll save a chair for you.
