SisterCircle at UU Congregation of Monmouth County, NJ

Our group, SisterCircle, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County, NJ (UUCMC) offered Cakes Part I in May and June of 2009. SisterCircle is a group that formed in 1993 when some of our members completed the first Cakes curriculum. We have been meeting once a week since December, 1993. We celebrate the 8 holidays of the Wheel of the Year with rituals to which the women of the congregation (and sometimes, men) are invited, as well as others. Our rituals are generally held at our Meeting House. We also have done many lay-led services, the most recent of which was entitled "A God Who Looks Like Me: Feminist Theaology" on September 6, 2009. We have also led several book discussions and shown several films, including "The Goddess Remembered" Trilogy, Meinrad Craighead's new film biography, Marija Giumbutas biography, Signs Out of Time, and a film encouraging young women who are interested in political careers entitled "What's Your Point, Honey?".

Our presentation of Cakes, Part I, was team taught. Two SisterCircle members taught each of the five sessions.

Thanks for inviting comments.
