Description of Activity
Say, in your own words:
In 2001, historian Warren Ross wrote an article for UU World magazine looking back at the first 40 years of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. In the article, Ross listed twelve pivotal moments that shaped our present denomination.
Distribute Handout 1, Twelve Moments That Shaped Today's UUA. Have volunteers take turns read the points aloud.
Now that you have heard one perspective on the defining events and their impact, I invite you to share any memories of those events or other moments you consider significant in our denomination's history since consolidation.
Lead a conversation. Then, if time allows, invite participants to share a moment significant in shaping their own connection with Unitarian Universalism.
