Whether you have come to Unitarian Universalism from another religious tradition, you consider yourself a lifelong UU, or perhaps have had your spirituality nurtured outside the bounds of these structures, the Owning Your Religious Past program offers this to you:

Through personal exploration and group sharing, we will be invited to reflect upon our individual religious histories and significant influences – the ones that may have hurt us and those that have affirmed our path. Importantly, we will be attentive to identifying the threads which weave our individual stories into a cohesive narrative. It is our hope that in Owning Your Religious Past you will find more space for yourself to be fully present in your current religious identity.

Join us as we look for the connections in our personal stories and deepen connections to one another through our group sharing.

This program will be offered in a weeknight format over 5 sessions as well as a weekend intensive version. Choose the option that best suits your learning needs and schedule.

Facilitator: Nicole McKay, our student minister, will facilitate this workshop. She has called two different religious traditions home prior coming to Unitarian Universalism. Nicole has been able to identify what she wants to carry forward with her, what she is willing to let go of, and what she has given new meaning. She looks forward to inviting you into this work.
