How Is Unitarian Universalism Changing? A Chance to Learn on Nov. 11 (on Zoom)

Rainbow colored graphic with people as chalice flameOn Thursday, November 11 UUFE will host a discussion titled, ‘ Heart of Unitarian Universalism’ at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. My hope is that many UUFE members and friends as well as newcomers will attend.

I’ll be joined in leading this session by Rev. Paul Boothby, a retired UU minister who recently moved to Talbot County. (Some of you have met Paul weeding our gardens and at community events.)

Together we’ll do our best to provide a snapshot of the UU faith in 2021. It will be a chance to consider the ways our faith is always changing.

I started attending a UU congregation in 1994 and much has changed since then. In my early years I learned bits about the UU faith tradition at a few classes. I taught Religious Education to toddlers and teens and led classes for newcomers and learned more. I was experiencing how Unitarian Universalism was being lived out in that specific congregation. Once in seminary (a Methodist seminary) I learned to describe my UU faith to others.

Through my years as a UU, I’ve learned our faith continually changes. What I learned at the beginning, I’ve had to keep reframing and re-understanding. As the world changes, the faith changes.

  • What does our UU faith look like in 2021?
  • Which of the basics I learned ‘way back when’ continue to sustain our faith?
  • Where are significant shifts occurring?

Our session on November 11 is about these questions. We hope to see you there!

In connection,
Rev. Sue
