Introduction, Session 6: The First U

In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program

Guilt is anger directed at ourselves.

— Peter McWilliams

The second of four sessions concerned with the Unitarian Universalist denomination, this one focuses on its Unitarian strand.

The session begins with a basic tenet of early Unitarianism, the oneness of God and considers some historical consequences of holding that belief and of human actions in general. Then the session explores the consequences of wrong actions, paving the way for discussing Universalism's ideas about salvation in Session 7.

The session plan suggests using fifteen minutes for a Faith in Action talk with a visitor who is involved with your congregation's social-justice programs. If you will not be doing that, consider using the alternate Ethics Play activity and tying it to the session's themes.
