The latest news from UU Women and Religion

These pages are an archive for the Florida UU Women and Religion chapter that dissolved in 2010. Continental UU Women and Religion is maintaining the site with any news of UU women in Florida that we can find. Fortunately the NE Florida Cluster women are continuing the retreat tradition with an event each Spring. Watch the UU Women's Events list at right for more information!

We've been given permission to unlock the Conference and Retreat Guides written by Rev. Barbara Child and updated by the FLUUWR group. We think the Guides can serve as a good solid basis for your group to modify for their own, and we invite you to do so! At the right is a list of the articles in the Guides. Please send any comments to

Blessed Be!

Nancy Rogers Nan and collection sm"I founded Studio Aurora in 2020; my ideas had been gestating for awhile, but I sensed the time was right for new beginnings; and how the world can benefit from a little more beauty and WomanPower! My designs feature artwork inspired by the Divine Feminine, my Unitarian Universalist spirituality, and my 9+ years as a Women's Red Tent founder and facilitator. It was my vision to create fun statement pieces and oversized earrings that I couldn't find anywhere else, and that I'm excited to wear. I use an industrial laser cutter at my local Maker space to create my original design lightweight wooden earrings and pendants. My paintings in acrylics are created in my own little home studio, where I'm surrounded by love, support, empowerment, and 4 ginger cats.

Studio Aurora is a passion project: I get to use my own creative voice, develop the artwork that I would like to contribute to the world and keep it fun and soulful. 'Aurora' is a family name (and my belly dance name!); invoking it is a gesture of gratitude and respect for my matrilineal heritage. 'Aurora' is also the Italian word for 'dawn', and speaks of new beginnings. There is nothing more deeply touching and connecting than when my artwork resonates with a client; it is the ultimate privilege to share my heart with you, and my vision of upholding the gift it is to be a woman.

I hope you have as much fun wearing these pieces as I had making them. And as my Grandma Aurora would say to you: 'Wear it in good health'. Peace, health, abundance, and love to you! xoxo"
