Rooted in our religious history and theological callings, this 6-week series explores reproductive “health,” “rights,” and “justice”; opens awareness of reproductive oppression; offers opportunities to learn about ourselves and each other as sexual and reproductive beings; and equips us to move forward, out into the world, with integrity and vision. This session explores various religious perspectives on life and pregnancy, historic and current attempts to use abortion as population control, and Unitarian Universalist theology of reverence for life.
Join us for a cup of coffee, a snack, and interesting conversations!
My oldest questions revolved around one simple idea “How do we know?” Over time I became more and more dissatisfied with the answer. Being a parent didn’t help me find an answer. Over time, I learned responsibility happened even in the absence of preparation, making me question John the Revelator…even while trying to embrace the breath of God. The old Gospel/Blues song asked the question, “Who’s that writing?” That’s one of many questions I’ll be asking on Sunday.
