THIS WEEK’S TOPIC

Faith Development in a UU Context, Part 1”

This month we will explore faith development in a UU context. This effort is a collaboration between me, the Worship Committee, leaders of Small Group Ministry, and Fellowship members who recently attended the Southern Region UUA Winter Leadership Experience.

Members who participated in this virtual event are Susan Dye, Megan Foster, Joyce Porter, and Angie Vincoli. They came away with many exciting ideas they hope to share with the congregation. One of the interesting statements they heard at this conference was, “Faith Development is all that we as UUs do.”

The concept of faith development may seem an odd term to use within a UU context. The quality of our relationships and the level of our commitment to social and ecological concerns would register to most of us as having a higher priority than ‘faith development.’

Many of us are refugees from traditional religious communities. A discomfort with traditional religion led us to a UU community. In the process many of us developed a strong sense of doubt regarding every aspect of traditional religion.

Is our doubt an endpoint or a beginning? Does doubt open a space for a different type of faith? Why is this question relevant to us?

In this first sermon in the series, I will explore the powerful impact doubt has on our community. I will explain how I understand the word faith and why it is useful in a UU context.

I look forward to seeing you Sunday.

Speaker:  Rev. Ed Brock

Worship Leader:  Joy Irwin
