UUA Webinar class- “Whose History is it Anyways?”
UUCC is Hosting a UUA Webinar class!
“Whose History is it Anyways?”
UU History- a new and needed perspective! An opportunity for us all to learn and grow together; as a congregation and religion, for our future, through our past!
All are invited and encouraged to attend
How does what history we know and teach about our religion affect who can see themselves and feel welcome in our congregations? What is the history we don’t know yet?
Reverend Connie Simon will be presenting new important research and perspective through this Webinar class titled “Whose History Is It Anyways?” How much do you know about the roots of our faith tradition? Explore the history of Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalist in this five week class. Using an anti-colonialist, multicultural lens, we’ll look beyond the traditional, dusty facts of history and examine to see how our faith was born and how it has developed and evolved over the years.
Class sessions will be in our church from 6:30- 9pm on Mondays January 27, February 3, February 10, February 17 and February 24. An additional final congregational discussion opportunity on what we have learned will be held Monday, March 2nd at 6:30pm.
New members and old are both hoping you will consider attending and growing with us.
Please sign up to attend on the sign up sheet clipboard in the gathering room. If you have any questions, or are interested but see obvious obstacles to your being able to participate, please contact Julie Hundley, event facilitator at JuliaHundley1980@gmail.com
Julie Hundley is a UUCCPF 2019 new member who would have joined years ago if when she visited the service had either not been about teaching UU history in the way she has consistently seen it understood and offered to her and others here. That history, while certainly one important part, showed her that this was not a place for her to grow, explore or feel at home. She recognizes now that UUs and our congregation are committed to principles that include supporting each other’s constant search for greater truth and believes that this class could be a part of new beginnings and deepening all our understandings of each other, ourselves, the nature of truth, and the future as well as the past of our beloved religion and congregational community. This class is one beginning Julie sees for UUCCPF as we seek, as a community, to deepen our understanding of how we make our principles actionable with each other; how we demonstrate love, respect, support and justice for all life; and how we create greater welcome in our home for more new members to come, join, stay and grow with us.
