LEADER RESOURCE 4: Engaging as Religious Professionals

This is a 25-minute activity.


Consider these questions as you reflect on the place of Channing's theology in contemporary Unitarian Universalism:

  • How do we help congregants acknowledge that each of us struggles with inner turmoil and unwanted emotions?
  • Channing's study routine was surely not a way contemporary Unitarian Universalists would recommend to deal with unwanted emotions. Channing paid a dear price for the way he chose to battle those emotions. What ways do contemporary Unitarian Universalists try to deal with unwanted emotions that can be just as damaging as the method chosen by Channing?
  • How do we encourage truth-telling in our congregations about emotional turmoil? In what ways can we support adults, young adults, youth, and children, in developmentally-appropriate ways, to learn and grow from their inner turmoil and to deepen their faith?
