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 provides an introduction to the full meaning of reproductive justice.

I remember being a new Unitarian Universalistsometimes it feels like yesterday. The first thing I did was try to find a systematic theology for my new faith. I was surprised when I noticed UUs don’t systematize theology in the same way many faiths do, especially evangelical ones. This was difficult for me to grasp, especially as I was asking the wrong questions. As I began to walk the path of understanding the UU Faith, I found joy in the strangest of places. And I also found we UUs do systematize our faith not with words but deeds as we hold that revelation is not sealed but continuous.

11:00 a.m. – Religious Exploration:

  • Chalice Children (ages 5-8): Wonderful Welcome – Through stories, song, guided play, and arts and crafts, the Chalice Children will explore and share the intangible gifts of welcoming central to Unitarian Universalism such as kindness, love, friendship, hospitality, and fairness.
