After Building Bridges

In your congregation, Building Bridges may segue nicely into the Tapestry of Faith program A Chorus of Faiths, developed with the Interfaith Youth Core to engage Unitarian Universalist youth (high school age) as interfaith leaders.

Religious Diversity in Unitarian Universalism

Many Unitarian Universalists have a religiously mixed heritage, theology, and/or faith identity. The UUA offers pamphlets on The Faith of a Theist, The Faith of a UU Buddhist, The Faith of a UU Christian, The Faith of UU Jews, and The Faith of a UU Humanist. Online, read the UUA pamphlet Discovering Unitarian Universalism from Catholic and Jewish Perspectives, by Patrick T. O'Neill and Linda R. Weltner.

Likewise, many of our congregations have religious diversity. Engaging Our Religious Diversity is a report from the commission on Appraisal of the UUA. Read or download the report.

Groups such as the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship, Unitarian Universalists for Jewish Awareness, and the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) support Unitarian Universalists with multiple religious connections.

Interfaith Activity in the U.S. Today

"American Congregations Reach Out to Other Faith Traditions: A Decade of Change 2000-2010" is a 2011 report by David Roozen, published by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research as part of the Faith Communities Today series.
