humanist green

We plan to meet at 7:00 p.m. on Tues. Aug. 15 in the Yellow Room at UUFSB to consider possible discussion topics to start the new UUFSB year on Tues. Sept. 19. Everyone is welcome! Possible topics suggested so far include:

  • Why more Americans are becoming secular
  • Why we are struggling with church/state separation
  • The rise of politics in religious communities
  • The struggle with class in Unitarian Universalism
  • The UUA "Statement of Conscience on Economic Inequality"
  • How we as UU's should deal with political diversity among our members
  • “Many politically conservative Unitarian Universalists who love our theological diversity, and our anti-oppression outreach, struggle to find a hospitable welcome within our ranks.”
  • Groups tend to develop a negative feeling toward the other. This is known as “othering”, a process in which others become mentally classified as “not one of us.” For UUs who are the others?
