On 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.)
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!
