Description of Activity
Lead a discussion of Kat Liu's essay, using these questions:
- What aspects of Unitarian Universalist culture does Liu find at odds with her own cultural identity? Why?
- What, from Liu's perspective, are the most important characteristics of a faith community? What threads of Unitarian Universalist theology and tradition are most important to her? Which are less important?
Bring the conversation to a close after about 15 minutes, and ask:
- What threads of Unitarian Universalist theology and tradition are most important in framing our own work to build antiracist/multicultural congregations?
- Which threads are less important?
- Are there aspects of our tradition and theology that work against building the world we dream about?
- How is building an antiracist/multicultural congregation a religious imperative? How is it an institutional imperative?
