In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Search for the Unitarian, Universalist, or Unitarian Universalist origins of your congregation. All Unitarian Universalist congregations, regardless of their age, have a history. One aspect of that history is the original theological and institutional identity of the faith community—Unitarian, Universalist, or Unitarian Universalist. This initial identity may be well known and celebrated, or it may be obscured by many layers of changes, or lost in the fogs of time. Even if the founding religion appears to be well established, there is likely some story about the congregation's affiliation that is less well known.
Here are some places to seek clues to your congregation's history:
Divide tasks so all can take part in the reconnaissance. Then, come together to share your findings and discuss:
Offer your discoveries to the congregation through a newsletter column, a page on the website, a homily, or a dramatic skit at a special event.
