The Faith Without Borders program is re-launching as a new individual/congregational resource for UU’s interested or currently engaged in international work: Encompassing the diversity and scope of current international UU projects and opportunities, Faith Without Borders represents a streamlined and unified web presence for the collaborative work being done between: The UUA’s International Office, the UU Service Committee, the International Council of UU’s, the International Convocation of UU Women, the International Association for Religious Freedom, the UU Partner Church Council, the UU United Nations Office, and the UU Holdeen India Program. As the site develops its collection of resources in the coming months, Faith Without Borders is pleased to share a new series of web-based resources called “Inspirations,” which tell the story of global Unitarian Universalism through our international partners and the work they are engaged in.
