Men's Fellowship

The Unitarian Universalist Men's Fellowship (UUMF) is an affiliated organization of The First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego. The goal of this fellowship is to assist men in their quest to discover who they are as men, sons, fathers, grandfathers, husbands, partners, and brothers.

UUMF 2017 Spring Renewal, April 21-23, 2017 Camp deBenneville Pines

Please mark your calendar now for the 2017 annual UUMF Spring Renewal to be held at Camp deBenneville Pines near Angelus Oaks, CA, high in the San Bernardino mountains. For many this event has become the high point of the year for brothers to rest, relax, and renew with old and new friends from all over the Pacific Southwest district of the UU and beyond.

The theme of our renewal this year, Love and Loss: Reimagining Our Relationships, deals not only with person to person relationships, but also relationships with changing political, environmental, and spiritual issues. The weekend will include workshops, deep sharing, music and drumming, silence, ritual, sweat lodge, games songs, laughter, and great food all in the safe circle of our brotherhood.

As usual we offer the option of the Thursday night before for those who wish an early arrive to help set up and enjoy the beauty of the Camp and surroundings.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support men in the quest for lives of compassion, integrity, responsibility, and balance. We are a caring, intentionally diverse brotherhood, committed to social justice, and offering opportunities for intimate sharing, personal growth, and spiritual deepening.

Fourth Monday Discussion

On the fourth Monday of the month, interested men meet in Room 114 (usually) from 7:00 to 9:00 pm to discuss a wide variety of topics dealing with men’s issues. Most meetings begin with a check-in. These discussions and events/topics are announced via our web site and email to UUMF participants.

Support Groups

The Men's Fellowship currently has a dozen closed committed active support groups. They usually meet twice a month at members’ homes. The groups range in size from five to eight men. If, after becoming familiar with the Fellowship, you would like to consider membership in a group, please contact Armin Kuhlman, support group coordinator. These are not crisis groups and require a significant time commitment.

Steering Committee

The direction of the Fellowship and upcoming events are discussed and coordinated at regularly scheduled meetings of the Steering Committee. We work on the consensus model and welcome input from all who attend.  Kim Cohn and Fergal O’Doherty  are our current conveners. Please email them regarding the next meeting.
