Introduction, Workshop 1: Telling Our Story: Multiple Truths and Multiple Realities
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, past president of the Unitarian Universalist Association
This workshop introduces key program elements including stories, dialogue, personal reflection, and sharing with others in small and large groups.
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 affirming and marginalizing experiences.
Before leading this workshop, review the accessibility guidelines in the program Introduction under Integrating All Participants.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
