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?
