UU History 101 is part of the CORE Path of Faith Forward: From Visitor to Leader. It is a 7-session introduction to concepts and people from our history. In this series, we approach history from the starting point of compelling stories and personalities. Participants explore the questions those people faced, and make connections with their own lives and the world around them. The overarching question is: how can history be translated into our religious life and practice? In addition to learning about history, participants learn about themselves.
The 7th session in the series focuses on your congregation's history, and provides a template for creating the narrative, with examples from First Unitarian Church of Dallas.
