Workshop: Living Unitarian Universalist History: Programs for UU Adults Gail Forsyth-Vail The Unitarian Universalist Association presented two new sixteen-session workshop history programs for UU Adults to be available in Fall 2010 as part of the Tapestry of Faith project. The programs, Living in the Stream: Stories from Unitarian and Universalist History by Rev. Jackie Clement and Rev. Alison Cornish, and History of Unitarian Universalist Resistance and Transformation by Rev. Colin Bossen and Rev. Julia Hamilton, both introduce key moments in our history through stories, primary source documents, activities and discussions that invite participants to better understand the ways in which our history informs both individual faith journeys and the on-going stories of our congregations and our movement. The workshop introduced the two new Unitarian Universalist history programs, using activities and stories from the programs to highlight methodology and philosophy behind the programs. The workshop provided opportunity for open interactions with the focus on history and heritage and on religious education. Tapestry of Faith Programs for Adults – online at Resistance and Transformation: Unitarian Universalist Social Justice History —Online Rev. Colin Bossen and Rev. Julia Hamilton Grounded in the belief that even "failures" in our history can be instructive, this program presents the ongoing struggle of our tradition to live up to its ever-evolving ideals of social transformation. Themes include abolition, peace-making, civil rights, free speech, utopianism, counter-culture, the women’s movements of both 19th and 20th centuries, sexuality education, and LGBT equality. Faith Like a River: Themes from Unitarian Universalist History—Online Rev. Jackie Clement and the Rev. Alison Cornish "Faith Like a River" explores the dynamic course of Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist (UU) history—the people, ideas, and movements that have shaped our faith heritage. It invites participants to place themselves into our history and consider its legacies. What lessons do the stories of our history teach that can help us live more faithfully in the present? What lessons do they offer to be lived into the future?
