Psalms for Comfort and Courage
with Rev. Barbara H. Gadon
Thursday evenings until November 5
7:00 – 8:30 pm via Zoom


For centuries, in both the Jewish and Christian traditions, the Psalms have helped people in difficult times. They have served as a container for the entire range of human experience, including joy, rage, peace, longing, and sorrow. We will use techniques like “Lectio Divina” and study different translations, as well as experiencing the psalms in art and music. We will try our hand at writing some of our own. People of all theologies and no theology welcome. You’ll get the most out of it as a live class, but all sessions will be recorded for you to watch on your own.

Approaching The Broken Heart of America and Healing Through History
with Rev. Krista Taves

Based on The Broken Heart of America: St. Louis and the Violent History of the United States by Walter Johnson

 Many of us want to better understand how racism shapes our country and our lives. We yearn to know the truth of our city and our state. We will use Walter Johnson’s eye-opening study as our guide. We will also consider how St. Louis Unitarian Universalists in the region have challenged, supported, enabled, resisted, and responded to the structural racism in our region through its long history and consider what our Unitarian Universalist faith asks of us now as we seek to acknowledge, undo, and end the harm of systemic racism. We will approach what can often be a difficult and painful history with both our minds and our hearts.  

Registration is closed for this series.

Going Deeper at Eliot Chapel


Going Deeper premiered Sunday, October 11

Have you ever wished that you could take what you hear in Sunday service and go deeper with it? Perhaps dig into the ideas and stories so that you can live into them just a bit more? Then this is for you! Going Deeper sessions focus on the core ideas that were explored in the latest worship service and, through a series of guided questions, take it to a new level. Going Deeper Groups are for everyone! If you’ve just connected to Eliot Chapel through our online worship services or have been part of the community for years, these groups are a place to connect, build relationships, engage your spiritual growth, and be nourished by deep authentic conversations.

There will be two kinds of Going Deeper Groups. The first is an open group that happens at 4:00 pm every Sunday. These sessions will be led by our four Eden Seminary UU interns and our ministers. There will also be groups led by trained facilitators who are members and friends of the congregation that will take place every two weeks on different days and times so that you can sign up for the one that works best for you. All sessions take place on Zoom.

Our first Sunday Going Deeper Open Group launched on October 11 and was be led by our four seminarians – Cory Lovell, Dee Evans, Sabrina Trupia, and Matthew Villareal. It was a chance to get a feel for the experience so you can decide if this might be for you. Sign ups for the twice monthly Going Deeper Groups start soon, so be on the lookout in our weekly newsletter "This Week At Eliot," and on our Facebook page or group for more information.
