New Program-"Faith Like a River"
Bonnie Norton will lead and moderate this 7-session program, Fridays 1-2:30pm, in which you’ll explore the dynamic course of Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist history—the people, ideas, and movements that have shaped our faith heritage. You need not attend all sessions.
October 6 Asta Linder, `Wading In - An Introduction
A selection of stories from our faith heritage offers not only a grounding of knowledge, but also insights into contemporary issues, practices, challenges, and trends in our faith movement.
October 13 Asta Linder, I've Got Tears Like the Raindrops - Freedom
This session explores key moments in our history when questions of freedom and justice were in the forefront of our movement. It shines an honest light on ways our forebears sometimes contributed to oppression as well as worked for liberation.
October 20 Asta Linder, Mirages and Oases - Idealism and Utopianism
This session introduces Transcendentalism, spiritualism, and Utopianism, three 19th-century movements which perhaps represent a high point of idealism in the United States as well as in both Unitarianism and Universalism.
October 27 Waters Hall, Ripples in the Water - The Evangelists
We may not think of ourselves as an evangelical faith, but many over the years have worked to intentionally spread the good news of Unitarian and Universalist thought. This session looks at individuals and groups in our faith history that helped our movement to grow.
