To kick off the New Year, the local Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (UUFCF) is adding a special service on the fifth Sunday of January with guest speaker, Robin A. Edgar, facilitating conversations designed to spark meaningful and insightful discussions about democracy and democratic values. 

Based on a new program developed by the Fetzer Institute, Edgar will key off on select quotes about democracy, freedom, equality, and the common good to guide participants to reflect on how to act upon those values in their personal life as well as in their communities. 

The session entitled: “Conversations on Democracy” is free and open to the public and will be held on Sunday, January 29, at the Whimsical World Gallery, 116 Jones St in Landrum at 10:30 a.m.
