Practicing the Heart of our Liberal Faith • 25-26 april 2014

ThandekaLove Beyond BeliefThandeka
Friday-Saturday • 25-26 April 2014 • Registration

Registration required: $20 through 19 April

Join us for an exciting workshop with
one of UUism’s leading religious thinkers.

Part 1: Friday – 6:30 to 9:45 pm
Part 2: Saturday – 9:30am to 4:30pm

Friday: Discernment and Analysis of Personal Experience as the major source of our Unitarian Universalist Faith.
This workshop explores personal and collective practices that open our hearts and our minds to insights beyond traditional religious beliefs.

Saturday: Exploring Personal Experience as the major source of our Unitarian Universalist Faith.
This workshop tests the insights and conclusions gained from Part One by putting them into practice. Through a series of faith development exercises, we will explore new ways of expanding and assessing our Unitarian Universalist faith as an ongoing personal and community way of life at UUCC. Should we call these experiences “love beyond belief”? Drawing upon our own personal experiences, we will answer this question.

Goal: Participants will have a deeper sense of who they are as Unitarian Universalists and an expanded sense of what they together can do. 

Thandeka is a theologian, journalist, Emmy award-winning television producer, and congregational consultant and organizer. Creator of the “We Love Beyond Belief” project for congregations (revthandeka.org), she was given the !Xhosa name Thandeka, which means “beloved,” by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1984.
