Most of us arrive at the Unitarian-Universalist faith at a point on a longer spiritual journey. Most of us come from somewhere else. What is your journey? What have you left behind and what have you kept, and how did you decide? The truth is we all build our own theologies, but we don’t often have a chance to stop and ask ourselves in a clear eyes manner what we believe. Not what we have been told to believe, but what do we really believe? Building Your Own Theology is a series of three courses, and a uniquely Unitarian approach to the reality of our spiritual identities. In Part One, you will have a chance to explore your spiritual history and consider some of the great questions of life, in a safe place, in an intimate circle of fellow explorers. You will have an opportunity to know yourself in a new way, and possibly make new friends for life. The final product of the course is a “credo”. This is a personal creed, written and defined, a living document that you will create for yourself, and maybe those who come after you, defining exactly who you were on this journey, and stating the truths you came to believe in. And most of all – WHY you believe what you believe.
Building Your Own Theology, Part One, is a series of ten sessions, which will be held biweekly on the second and fourth Wednesday evening of each month. We will gather in the Common Room or a classroom of the UUCA in the evening from 6:30 – 8:00pm. This is not limited to UU members. If you have a friend or a family member who is curious about our faith community this is the best possible way to introduce them. All are welcome. The sessions are free, but participants are expected to acquire the green book “Building Your Own Theology” Second Edition that is available from Amazon or the UUA.org bookstore.

Forget what the world has told you to believe – What do you REALLY believe?
