ARTICULATING YOUR UU FAITH: Four-Part Series

UNIVERSALISM
: A Faith of Radical Inclusiveness in a Two-Part Series
Universalism is rooted in an understanding of the love of God for all creatures. If there’s a heaven, everybody gets in! It’s evolved over the centuries toward an understanding across faiths that we are part of an interconnected web of all life. It is a concept so revolutionary that the response called for can evoke truth and reconciliation across age-old differences, and justice and compassion for all. We’ll consider voices of Universalism stemming from the time of Confucius to our own day in our lives, individual and communal. Participants will be asked to prepare with some readings before each session.
Facilitator: Rev. Jan Carlsson-Bull
2 Sessions, Tuesdays March 22nd and April 19th, 7-8:30 pm
