Our Sunday Forum presents programs of interest to the congregation providing intellectual stimulation and spiritual inspiration related to our 7 UU Principles and sources of the living traditions we share.
Each Forum features speakers and panelists chosen from the congregation and the community on the basis of expertise in an area bearing on one or more of the seven UU Principles or illuminating one of the sources of our living tradition. Topics typically consist of issues and information related to social justice, religious freedom, spiritual growth, democratic values, exploration of other religious faiths, UU history, the right of conscience, the free and responsible search for truth and meaning, and international relations as they bear on world peace and amity between nations.
A Chosen Faith
1st, 2nd, 3rd Sundays * 11:45-1:00pm * Library
From the Greek word “hairesis”, meaning, “choice”, we get the word heresy. And indeed, Unitarian Universalism (UU) is a faith which originated from ancient heresies and is still the faith of modern heretics, people who have decided to choose for themselves the faith that speaks to their own lives and values. If you are one of these people, we invite you to learn more about UUism and UUFNN.
ACF #1 The astonishing history of the UUA & UUFNN. How did the UUA wind up on J. Edgar Hoover’s hit list and other amazing stories.
ACF #2 What do you believe? And how does that fit with UU’s creedless faith?
ACF #3 Who’s in charge here? And how do we work to fulfill our mission to grow in love, faith, justice and joy?
Each session is held on the corresponding Sunday of the month (i.e. #1 on the first Sunday), 11:45-1pm in Emerson Room. We suggest attending at least #1 or #2 (if not both, in either order) prior to #3 if you are a newcomer.
Both newcomers who are curious about Unitarian Universalism and UUFNN and current members who want to deepen their knowledge and commitment will find these sessions informative and inspiring. Newcomers who complete all three sessions of this series are invited, should they wish, to become members of UUFNN at a special ACF #4.
