Adult Religious Exploration
Join us this Sunday at 9 am in the MacArtor Library for the next class in the Diverse Community series — The Water is Wide: Multiculturalism. Although the term “multicultural” is fairly new, the challenge and opportunity to embrace those with different experiences, perspectives, and ways of being in the world are not. As Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists, we have at times in our history followed societal norms in our willingness or reluctance to welcome diversity. At other times, we have confronted and refuted the accepted ways—sometimes our own accepted ways — in order to embrace diversity and invite it to transform us. This workshop explores stories of multicultural encounter from our tradition; some are inspiring, and some ask us to examine past actions with candor and compassion. This workshop will:
- Explore how Unitarians, Universalists and Unitarian Universalists have historically viewed cultural differences, including the unique identities of individuals and groups
- Invite participants to reflect on their own experiences of inclusion and exclusion in Unitarian Universalist settings
- By examples from our history, both exemplary and cautionary, point the way toward building the multicultural, welcoming congregations and Association that manifest our highest values, expectations, and capabilities.
This is a drop-in discussion — no registration is necessary.
It’s going to be another wonderful day of worship and fellowship at Mill Creek!
