Description of Activity

The Religions Time Line is updated to add Unitarian Universalism.

Ask participants if they remember when Unitarianism started. When Universalism started? The date the Unitarian Universalist Association was created by merger? After youth respond, affirm these dates: Unitarianism, late 1700s; Universalism, 1700s; UUA merger 1961. Add the three sticky notes to the time line.

Invite a volunteer to locate the United States on the globe or map. Point out other places Unitarianism is practiced: Transylvania, Canada, India, Europe, and the Philippines.
