Socratic Inquisition Partnership (SIP)
This group will work within the UU framework to establish clarity and mutual understanding of complex social issues. By discussing and challenging the terminology and ideas underpinning modern social discourse, we seek first to share an understanding even if we do not agree. Then, we question the ways our words, ideas, and resultant societal misunderstandings divide us and inhibit effective social engagement by the greater whole.
We will not try to gulp these topics, but rather, sip them as we consider myriad view points, intentionally question and argue opposing views, as we work to reach a group view – or a group understanding that we do not not all agree.
SIP will meet 2 times per month as open meetings. See the detailed schedule on the graphic below.
Open to anyone interested in SIP. This is unstructured time to get to know each other better and talk about (theoretically) lighter topics. Wine is often involved, and you’re welcome to bring snacks to share.
SIP Gathering: Discussions on the UU Principles
Open to anyone interested in SIP. The meeting format allows each attendee to share their own personal interpretation of the topic, followed by a moderated discussion loosely following the Socratic Method.” If needed, we will split into smaller groups for part of the evening to facilitate more in-depth discussion.
Interested? Join in person (only) in the Fellowship library.
