The second (and final) session of Owning Your Religious Past will be Sunday, September 23, 1-3 p.m.

If you missed the first session but are interested in joining us, please get in touch with Amy in time to do an exercise that they did together last Sunday.

Most Unitarian Universalists come into the denomination from other religions; often there have been several stops along the way. Some bring warm memories of their experiences in other religious institutions, others have angry and unresolved feelings and feel scarred. Some move easily into Unitarian Universalism; others experience a traumatic estrangement from family and the center of their culture. As a congregation, we don’t always pay enough attention to these personal journeys. These workshops provide tools to examine and retrieve positive aspects of our religious histories. Because we are usually more certain about what we left behind, rather than what we bring with us, tools are needed to help us establish our path as a continuum, setting us free to make healthy commitments. This workshop is not just for “converts.” Longtime and lifelong Unitarian Universalists also experience change, sometimes profoundly, in religious identity. These sessions are enriched when people of varying “tenure” as UUs participate.
