Fridays with Tracy
Fridays with Rev. Tracy (10:00 am)
Everyday Spiritual Practice with Tracy- The first Friday of each month we explore our own spiritual practices and rituals as well as discover new ones to bring wholeness, meaning, connection, and depth to our lives.
Dates: December 4, January 8, February 5, March 5
Creative Connection with Cherie Henderson- The second Friday of each month, we pause for an hour of reflective reading, writing and discussion about a text, image, or music. We’ll examine the work closely and discuss what we find, followed by the opportunity to write and share. The goal is a moment of solace and space, along with an opportunity for reflection and connection with others.
Dates: December 11, January 15, February 12, March 12
Visiting Sages- Other Fridays of the month we will have visits with different people from all walks of life and garner from them a little wisdom.
December 18: “Compassionately Traversing our Chaotic Time” with Rev. Allen Wells
Allen serves as the Affiliated Community Minister of The Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, Morristown, NJ.

He maintains a mindfulness-based psychotherapy practice in Morristown, N.J., and teaches meditation at Buddhist sanghas. For two decades he directed The Allen Wells Center for Psychotherapy and Healing in Morristown, NJ. and formerly served as a staff psychotherapist for the DiMele Center for Psychotherapy in NYC.
He has a Certificate of Completion of the Integrated Study Practice Program at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies in Barre, Mass, and holds a postgraduate degree in pastoral counseling from the Institute of Religion and Health in NYC.
Allen has served UU congregations in Weymouth, Mass., Hollis Queens, The First Unitarian Church of Brooklyn and the First Unitarian Society of Rockland County, NY.
He is particularly interested in the interplay between neuroscience and Buddhism. And he loves poetry. He acknowledges that he hasn’t written any books because he says he would rather spend the time ballroom dancing.
