The May theme for worship, RE, and small groups at WUUC is: What Does It Mean to be a People of Curiosity? Our monthly themes and resource materials come from Soul Matters Sharing Circle, a network of Unitarian Universalist congregations. See this month’s materials in the attachment at the bottom of this article.

As we move into this season of exploration, consider the following:

  • Curiosity stems from the Latin – curiosus: careful, diligent or inquisitive.   This is the same root for care and careful which implies an intention in curiosity, a sense of purpose about it.
  • Everyone is born curious.  But only some retain the habit of exploring, learning and discovering as they grow older. Those who do tend to be smarter, more creative and more successful.
  • When it comes to curiosity, we often leave out ourselves. We explore the world, but pass by ourselves without wondering.
  • What in the world are you curious about?  Is space, technology, earth, health, culture, music or art a topic of curiosity for you? Get a little curious about why you are curious about a particular topic.
  • What can you learn about the opposite side of an issue? Be curious rather than judgmental.
  • The two greatest days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. (Mark Twain).
