The First Universalist Church of Auburn is set to present a story of a spiritual journey at noon Sunday, April 7, in the 169 Pleasant St. vestry.

The Adult Religious Exploration committee plans to host “Holly Cooney’s talk, From Fear to Faith: A Solo Three-Month Biking Trip on the American Discovery Trail.”

Through pictures and stories, Cooney will offer a reflection about a bicycle trip she took in 2002. The trip was a life-changing journey both outward and inward, according to a news release from the church.

Adult RE’s new speaker series, Treks and Sojourns, provides a space in which Unitarian Universalists can talk about their travels. The name is an invitation to focus solely on travel as a secular experience (a trek), to offer a more spiritual dimension to the excursion (a sojourn), or to share a mixture of both (trek and sojourn).

For more information about the series, email Adult RE chair Charles Nero at

The first Treks and Sojourns featured Bill Frayer talking about “Croatia: The Jewel of the Adriatic.”
