what do we need to feel equipped
What do we need to feel equipped?

Responses from participants:

  • Our congregational history
  • Are there videos linked to TOF – “heroes” history?
  • Interactive class – how do we teach history?
  • Need a grasp of the whole history so we can feel confident about the context
  • Trouble searching for stories – description instead of just title?
  • “canon” of stories that all kids/youth should hear and re-hear?
  • Timelines for children and youth – image library online?
  • Recommended “standards” for all ages
  • Visuals, sensory stimuli, best practices in presenting stories
  • Congregations and beyond opportunity?
questions
Questions
  • How do we live out values society does not support?
  • How do we balance the needs of community vs. individual?
  • What responsibility do we have to bring everyone to the table? How do we make sure all voices are heard?
  • How have we learned to be a pluralistic faith community?
  • How can we empower people today to see themselves as co-creators of our UU history (living history)?
  • How do we not create myths, not put people on pedestals, but tell the truth – even when it is uncomfortable?

Resistance and TransformationWorkshop 15
  • In the winter of 1987-88, the Common Vision Planning Committee conducted a survey of Unitarian Universalists to collect basic information about how UUs feel about the inclusion of gay, lesbian and bisexual persons in our religious movement (the survey did not include questions about transgender people).
  • About 14 percent of the respondents were gay, lesbian, or bisexual; 86 percent identified themselves as heterosexual.
  • Listen to some of the voices of those respondents who identified themselves as heterosexuals.
reflection
Reflection
  • Recall your own journey as you learned about homosexuality. For some of us, this is a "coming out“ story. For some of us, this is a "learning about" story.
  • What important events or people did you encounter along the way?
  • What role, if any, has your Unitarian Universalist faith played in your journey?

Form triads and share some of your reflections (10 minutes) after which we’ll re-gather in the large group.

large group discussion
Large Group Discussion
  • How have attitudes and assumptions changed since 1989 in our Association?
  • Our congregations?
  • The broader society?
  • What work remains to be done?
