Seeking youth group builder/leader

Auckland Unitarians are looking for a leader to create and lead a youth group in our community.

Our vision is that in these times of high anxiety around climate change, increasing inequality and racial tensions, that our community is able to stand as a source of hope and spiritual inspiration and support. We believe that for young people in Auckland, there is a need for such a community

We would be able to provide a curriculum, or the youth leader could develop their own, as long as it was in line with Unitarian–Universalist principles. The group would be expected to meet in the church building in Ponsonby, on a weekly or fortnightly basis.

If you are interested, or know of anyone who might be suitable for this role, please email us at youthgroup@aucklandunitarian.org.nz

Art on a spiritual theme…

Interactive Station: The Tree of Life or the Tree of Enlightenment.

Finished mandala with exhibition visitor’s names on leaves and attributes of a nurturing community on the flowers.

The Tree of Life appears in almost every faith, but it could be the Jewish Old Testament tree in Eden, the Christian, Mormon or Baha’i Tree of Life, the Bodhi Tree of Enlightenment of the Buddhist, The Norse tree of Yggdrasill, the Oak tree of the Druid or the Fig tree of Hinduism.

All are pictures of the archetypal Sacred Tree, a metaphor for the source of life and connecting all forms of creation.

One-day-only exhibition: Saturday 6th July, 12.00 noon to 4.00pm.

A variety of artists with different influences and views on a common theme of spirituality, illustrating the very many ways art can be spiritual.
