Message from our Director of Religious Education
Our History Matters
Last Spring, our children presented a song with movement. The first verse was "standing on the Earth with our roots dug down...". The image of solidity and grounding those words and movements evoke feel powerful and reassuring to me.
If we are to be, live, and act with intention in our UU faith, wouldn't it serve us to connect with our roots? Whether one chooses to picture a line, a circle, or a trip, there are people and events that brought forth the Unitarian Universalism we each experience today. Their stories are important and vital to our journey.
The more personally we engage both with head and heart in our history, the more likely we are to build relationship with each other. We connect and are rooted in solid ground as we go out to serve our World.
The Long Strange Trip curriculum, exploring the history of Unitarian and Universalist thought, has been offered and moderated by Bonnie Norton as a Sunday ARE option. It has been so wildly popular, that Bonnie and I had requests from a number of you that a weekday repeat of the course, for those that couldn't attend on Sundays, would be greatly appreciated.
Please check your March calendar as both an afternoon and evening session of the course will begin Mondays in March. Many thanks to Bonnie for continuing to share her time and talent as moderator.
