Share Your Story of the Future of Unitarian Universalism

 

We know at least three things about the future of Unitarian Universalism:
 

1. Organized religion is changing at breakneck speed as more people look for forms of spiritual community that better meet their needs for meaning, personal fulfillment and companionship.
 
2. Our Unitarian Universalist tradition and principles speak directly and powerfully to many of these people, even if our traditional ways of being in community do not.
 
3. Unitarian Universalist leaders of all types are pioneering new ways of being in community, worshiping, educating, expressing creativity, leading social justice and starting up social enterprises that give exciting expression to our faith.

 

For Breakthrough 2018-19, the UUA and UU World want to celebrate innovative ways Unitarian Universalist communities of all kinds are better serving those who need Unitarian Universalism right now. We can’t wait to tell your story.

Transforming Our Faith and Ourselves
 

The UUA seeks faith development professionals to lead a structured, pilot process in the congregations they serve to dismantle white supremacy in religious education programming. The process is for congregations of any size, staff configuration and geographic location, and with any level of anti-racism experience.

The program begins in November and applicants must commit to participation through June 2019. Before applying, please read details and view this informational webinar.  Applications are due by Oct. 26.

 

Make An Impact in Communities

 

The Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF) will be sending more than 890 holiday cards to CLF members experiencing incarceration, many of whom are particularly lonely and without support at this time of year. Could your congregation help? Learn moreincluding important "Dos and Don'ts" for preparing your cards.

Now is the time for congregations to schedule immersion learning journeys with the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice for Spring and Summer 2019. Learn more about the journeys available to youth, young adults and adults of all ages or contact info@uucsj.org to ask about setting dates for your congregation.
