Setting Hearts Aflame

Posted by Carey McDonald // August 26th 2013 // Events and Opportunities, young adults // no comments


The 2013 Life on Fire un-conference for missional Unitarian Universalists is happening September 13-15 at the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. If you don’t know the word “missional,” then you may not know about this community of forward thinking and spiritually passionate people. Seeking to reorient the traditional church so that we reach outwards to the world with our deepest values and principles, this new strain of religious leadership holds appeal for UU’s of all ages, and particularly for young folks who are looking for a embodied faith community.

Want to feel your values put into action over the weekend? Make your way to Tennessee! More information is available at the Life on Fire 2013 website at lifeonfire13.wordpress.com or visit the Life on Fire 2013 Facebook page.

From the Life on Fire 2013 website:

Life on Fire seeks to gather together people committed to living missionally – living lives of radical integrity based deeply in their faith or values at the crossroads of personal and community life.  This will be a community of mutual education, support and inspiration. It’s not about bringing in “experts” or big-name church planters. It’s about learning with and from one another’s experiences and experiments, and helping visions and plans get set into motion.
