Learning Objectives, Workshop 7: James Luther Adams
In "What Moves Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
- Gain personal knowledge about their own understanding of religious devotion, the affectional foundation of which, according to James Luther Adams (1901-1994), is love
- Grow in their self-knowledge about their own conversion experiences and the emotional foundations of their own Unitarian Universalist faith and its links to their religious behavior toward others
- Understand a theological grounding of the Unitarian Universalist notion that what is important are "deeds, not creeds"
- Develop awareness of how their own participation in "voluntary associations," in their congregation and beyond it can, by reflecting their religious beliefs, deepen their private spiritual lives while helping them extend their hands, through social justice work, to others.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
