The purpose of the ARE Committee is to plan and present a program of courses and events that promote the spiritual life of the participants, increase knowledge of their own and other religions, bring together members and friends of the parish as well as people from the wider community, and support and pass on the traditions of the Society of King's Chapel. The core program is a series of courses conducted by our ministers, parishioners, and guests. The committee also organizes retreats. Other activities depend on the initiative of those who propose them and those who help make them happen. In 2012, ARE sponsored classes on: Contemplative Living, the Poetry of Ronald S. Thomas, Glimpses of Islam, Create Your Own Mosaic, a two-part seminar on the History and Development of Unitarianism and the UUA and the United Church of Christ. Additionally, the King's Chapel Winter Retreat was held at Glastonbury Abbey.
The 2013 ARE calendar is coming soon.
