One of the joys of being a Unitarian Universalist is that our theologies can be fluid and creative. We have the freedom to be responsive to and hold a conversation with sacred texts, personal and cultural tragedies, and our sense of the divine. How do we allow our views and understandings to be shaped by those who are different from us? How do we converse with painful and confusing truths in an honest and formative way?

Offered by Rev. Dr. Wayne Arnason & Rev. Kathleen Rolenz The Co-Ministers Request the Pleasure of Your Company at the first service of our worship theme year, where we start exploring the question: “Do I Know How to Have a Real Conversation?.” The invitation into conversation can be offered and received in so many ways in the society in which we live. We will look at how it happens in dating, in social media, in elections and in church. This service includes a Ceremony of Dedication for our Religious Education Program’s Volunteer Teachers. Although this will not be a formal class day, children (and parents, if you wish) are invited to come to the classrooms to meet their teachers and classmates and have some orientation to the year.
