Sundays @9:30: Open Issues

The Open Issues Forum at Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater is attended by numerous members of the UUC congregation and the public as well. No topic is out of bounds; often they are unsettled issues. We encourage agreeable disagreement, knowing that we learn more by considering different points of view. One of our goals is to learn more than we think we already know. We meet every Sunday from 9:30-10:25 a.m. in the Patio Room of our Social Hall, the building immediately east of our main building, the Octagon Art Center. Need directions? Have a question or idea for a forum? Click here.
