Learning Objectives, Workshop 2: Against the Flow – Orthodoxy and Heresy

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

Participants will:

  • Understand contemporary Unitarian Universalism's relationship to historical heretics not as a direct theological link, but as a sympathetic connection based on the value of theological questioning and the principle that "revelation is not sealed"
  • Learn about Arias, an early heretical figure in Western Christian history, and why he was a theological outsider
  • Consider what it means to include or exclude others from a community of faith on the basis of their ideas or beliefs
  • Explore whether and if so, how, one might apply the terms "orthodoxy" and "heresy" within contemporary Unitarian Universalism.
