Our religious education programs often embrace the explicit goal of building UU identity in our children and youth but the work of figuring out “who I am” and what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist is just as meaningful for adults. Unitarian Universalism requires you to be an active participant in building your religious identity, a task that sometimes requires letting go or “unlearning” painful lessons from our past. What does it mean to “be” a Unitarian Universalist? What role does faith development play in constructing a religious identity that matches your particular experience and your unique journey? This track will explore these important questions and lift up specific pathways and trainings for identity exploration, particularly suitable for leaders.
