Introduction, Workshop 1: Telling Our Story: Multiple Truths and Multiple Realities, Part One

In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program

What is true is that for Unitarian Universalism to move into a vibrant future, we will need to mine our past for stories of resistance to oppression, stories of openness to new ways of being religious, stories of transformation that have built new understandings into our narrative of who we are. — Rev. William G. Sinkford

This workshop introduces many of the key elements that characterize Building the World We Dream About: stories, dialogue, personal reflection, sharing with others in small and large groups, and reflective exercises to help bring learning into participants' lives within and beyond the congregation.

Participants consider questions of confidentiality and emotional and spiritual safety as the group begins its journey together. The workshop invites them to engage with their own experiences and those of others as they explore Dr. Lee Knefelkamp's work that defines experiences of "mattering" and "marginality."

Before leading this workshop, review the accessibility guidelines in the program Introduction under Integrating All Participants.
