Engaging Our Theological Diversity (August – November, 2021)

A Discussion Group based on the UUA Commission on Appraisal 2005 report 

This discussion group on “Framing the Question: What Holds Us Together?” – section one of the UUA report “Engaging Our Theological Diversity” – was held on the second and fourth Wednesday evenings each month from August through November, 2021. 

In the introduction to the report, the Commission points out that “despite consensus within the church that the liberal message of Unitarian Universalism is important in this troubled world, we find it difficult to articulate that message clearly.” In addition, “one of the goals of this report is to promote the notion that a healthy diversity requires common ground.”

Discussion group materials and notes for each session are available below.
