Course Description

This pilot program of UUI’s Read and Discuss (R&D) endeavor begins with the five Adjuster Papers 107-111. In addition to providing an opportunity to expand one’s cosmic consciousness and enhance spiritual perception regarding Adjusters, it also provides a forum for developing religious habits of recognizing spiritual living in others, reflection on divine values and cosmic meanings, and sharing one’s spiritual life with others.

The R&D format requires participants to read the selected material the week before a Saturday Zoom call.  Going section by section we will  address questions and share insights, We will then break into three-person small groups for fellowship and respond to relevant prompts from the week’s reading. We will then  re-group and share responses to the prompts.

An optional worksheet for each paper is also provided.

No. A video will be provided.

We will spend the first 30-45 minutes going section by section of the paper(s) for the week asking questions and sharing insights.


When finished we’ll spend 30 minutes in 3-person break-out rooms getting to know one another better and discussing responses to 3-4 prompts from the papers for the session.


We’ll reconvene and discuss our responses to the prompts.
