Goals (What Moves Us)

This program will:

  • Demonstrate how personal experiences become the primary source of our religious convictions as Unitarian Universalists, by exploring stories from the lives of key Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalists
  • Explore why personal experience is foundational to our faith, by examining:
  • How our Unitarian Universalist theology flows out of our personal reflections on unexpected shifts in our emotional lives
  • How such acts of self-reflection, unrestricted by traditional religious doctrine or dogma, inform our ethical behavior
  • How our identities as Unitarian Universalists emerge in our own religious communities of care and compassion as our personal experiences of a change of heart and our doctrinal freedom to explore its meaning are transformed into our personal Unitarian Universalist convictions and their expression in faith-in-action initiatives to heal and transform the world.
  • Equip adult learners to recognize and articulate their own responses to their own personal feelings and explore how these responses illuminate the foundations of their personal theology, ethical behavior, and Unitarian Universalist identity
  • Support participants to systematically articulate their Unitarian Universalist theology of personal experience using a personal theology journal
  • Affirm that the variety of theological streams within our liberal faith tradition simultaneously represents an amazing diversity and displays our unity as one religious people.
