About the 2018 Adult RE Program

Do you love history? Unitarian Universalism has a long history that shapes our current identity. History is often viewed as a linear progression where events follow events and actions occur in reaction. But history is not straightforward. This program guides you to explore the dynamic course of Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist history—the people, ideas, and movements that have shaped our faith heritage.

This series will be divided into 5 four-part sections to be held over the course of the year, with three in the spring and two in the fall. Topics include UU Identity, Diverse Community, Institutionalism, Freedom of Belief, and Prophets and Social Justice.

The introductory session will be held at the beginning of each section. This is a drop-in discussion held Sundays from 9-10:15 am. No registration or commitment is necessary. Facilitators will rotate.

  • Section One: UU Identity (Reason as a Religious Source, Covenant, Polity) January 28-February 18
  • Section Two: Diverse Community (Religious Tolerance, Globalization, Multiculturalism) April 8-April 29
  • Section Three: Institutionalism (Unitarianism, Universalism, Consolidation) May 13- June 10
