The Religious Education Committee is pleased to announce a new adult education course that will meet monthly, beginning October 28, from 10-11 am on Sundays. Ann Heintz and Dan McKanan will lead this course. We will begin with a broad overview of Unitarian Universalist history, using Dan McKanan’s essay on that topic in the UU Pocket Guide. Participants will then identify three or four specific topics they’d like to explore in more depth—both as they played out in our movement as a whole and in our own congregation and its precursors. We will look especially for topics that will allow us to engage the messy history underlying contemporary challenges such as white supremacy. In the spring, finally, we will work together to explore, and perhaps organize, the congregational archives in our attic.
Individuals who would like to participate should contact Dan McKanan by October 25 to obtain a copy of the text for the first meeting. (Paper copies will be available on October 18, and electronic copies can be provided by email.) We will schedule subsequent meetings based on the schedules of the participants, taking care NOT to schedule meetings on those Sundays when the choir is rehearsing in the 10 am timeslot.
