We are a community of curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We gather to explore and be reminded of what really matters in life through discourse with friends who respect our personal journey. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned our desire to make a difference for good. We recharge through not only discourse, but also through song and the lighting of a candle, experiencing awe and connection. We also challenge each other to live our values through social action initiatives.
We offer our children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

Strengthening Bonds with UU of Basel
We had two visitors join us for our UUG Gathering on 15 November 2015, along with speaker, UU shared-ministerial intern Lara Fuchs, who hails from our sister congregation in Basel: Matt Gilsenan, who is currently Vice President of UUB and Lesley Andrews, who is Secretary and Acting Treasurer. Thank you so much for coming the "long" way from Bâle and sharing a Sunday evening with us! http://www.uubasel.org/
Matt Gilsenan also serves as President of the virtually-base European UUs which connects UU fellowships and individuals around Europe. UUBasel is in charge of organizing the Spring 2016 EUU Retreat in Mittelwihr (Alsace), France, 15–17 April 2016, and we hope attendance by UUGeneva will be strong and numerous. These retreats are super fun for everyone (and very social and music-oriented!) http://www.europeanuu.org/
Next UUG Gathering
Sunday, 28 February, 2016, 5pm (17h)
Quaker House, 13 ave. Mervelet, 1209 Petit Saconnex, Geneva
Theme: To Be Announced - Intergenerational meeting
Presenter: Lara Fuchs-Holm, UU Ministerial Intern to Geneva, Basel, Amsterdam

Our Children's Mindfulness Circle runs from 4-5 pm before the gathering. It's an independent community outreach, independent of our once-a-month service, offered on a donation basis (to the teacher/leaders). This month it will be led by Kate Lanxner UUG Youth Director, assisted by Marie Pejcic. We are drawing from exercises in Thich Nhat Hanh's book for children. ( Registration required. Please click here)
Our creative Children's Activity during the UUG gathering will not take place this month because it will be an intergenerational gathering, so the youth will remain with their parents during the gathering.
Lara sends this message to the UUG fellowship: "As your student minister, I am available to support members with a listening ear and caring, pastoral presence. I am training to have a ministerial presence by providing meaningful Sunday worship experiences, and am also honored to offer rites of passage such as weddings, child dedications and memorial services. Please feel free to call on me." Email: email@example.com
