Introduction, Workshop 11: As Tranquil Streams that Meet and Merge — Consolidation

In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program

If, recognizing the interdependence of all life, we strive to build community, the strength we gather will be our salvation... If we join spirits as brothers and sisters, the pain of our aloneness will be lessened, and that does matter. — Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley

This workshop explores issues and events in the consolidation of the AUA and the UCA into a single entity, the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. The workshop highlights important cooperative work done by the youth movements and religious educators of both denominations, which smoothed the way for the consolidation. Participants learn about some of the achievements of the young Association and its influence on the wider culture. They consider how the dual heritages of Unitarianism and Universalism have shaped our movement.

Before you lead this workshop, review the Accessibility Guidelines for Workshop Presenters in the program Introduction and prepare to accommodate anyone who may be in the group.
