  • Copy Handout 1 for all participants.

Description of Activity

Participants recognize and discover famous Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists.

As participants enter, invite them to take a copy of Handout 1 and a pencil. Instruct them to circle the names they knew were UUs, underline those they thought might be UUs but were not sure about, and mark with an exclamation point to mark the names which were a total surprise. Invite participants to compare lists. Encourage them to take the handout home and research people whose names they do not recognize.
