Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 3: Roots and Wings

In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program

Spend time reflecting on your relationship to your religious roots. Who are your ancestors? What religious or cultural traditions did they share with you? Are these traditions and beliefs still part of your life? One of the challenges of exploring roots and wings is holding a balance between the tradition and culture that one inherits and the search for one's own revealed truths. How do you hold this balance? Some people reject tradition based on the idea that, as free liberal religious people, "we can believe whatever we want." What is your reaction to this statement? Be aware of the assumptions you bring from your religious upbringing in Unitarian Universalism or another faith tradition.
