Today on the UUA’s website there is a story about the Houston, TX Metro Strategic Planning Group field testing the new curriculum by the Rev. Dr. Thandeka, What Moves Us: Unitarian Universalist Theology. As I hear calls for more lay theological education regularly I thought I’d highlight this curriculum. You can explore Tapestry of Faith here.
The following is a brief overview of “What Moves Us.”
Providing a framework for deep and longtime Unitarian Universalists to engage in theological reflection, not as an intellectual exercise, but as a process of meaning-making that equips one for living in the world as a Unitarian Universalist person of faith, this program explores the life experiences of both historic and contemporary Unitarian Universalist theologians, highlighting that which caused in them a change of heart, a new direction, new hope, and a deeper understanding of their own liberal faith. These workshops offer participants a chance to engage with and bring their personal experiences to bear on the very questions explored by each theologian in turn. The program offers a pathway for developing not only one’s own personal theology but also one’s deep understanding of the threads of our Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist theological heritage.
