Theology for a Secular Age: the Theology UU University Track

  • What distinguishes Unitarian Universalism (UUism) from other faith traditions?
  • What is the relationship between your personal faith and your religious community?
  • As a person of faith, how do you balance religious wisdom and scientific insight?

Theology is the process of talking about faith in a thoughtful and organized way—how faith arises, what sustains it, why it falters, and where it can make a difference in our lives and world.

Today, theology stands at a crossroad. For centuries, theology has described how divine revelation accounts for our experience and dictates our actions. What happens to religion when reason, rather than revelation, becomes our most reliable source of knowledge?

In a secular age, people who believe in science can be genuinely religious—if theology itself is transformed.
