WEBINAR: Whose History Is It Anyway?
Connie Simon
Reverend Connie Simon
Monday, January 27, 2020 – 6:45 pm to 8:00 pm CST

Type of Event: Webinar

How much do you know about the roots of our faith tradition? Explore the history of Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalism in this five-week class. Using an anti-colonialist, multicultural lens, we’ll look beyond the traditional, dusty facts of history and examine to see how our faith was born and how it has developed and evolved over the years.

Topics include: Whose story is it anyway, Why history matters, The Roots of Liberal Religion, The Universalists, The Unitarians, Transcendentalism, Westward Expansion, Humanism, Consolidation, Principles, and Sources, Drawing the Circle Wider, Indigenous, Latinx, Black and Non-Black People of Color, GLBTQ, and Disability.

Presenter: Reverend Connie Simon

This webinar has a fee, which is unusual for the MidAmerica Region. It has a fee for several reasons. First, the presentations will be highly unique, viewing UU history through an anti-colonialist, multicultural lens. Second, 85% of the proceeds from this webinar will go to Reverend Connie Simon so that she can continue her important historical research. The fee of $25 per individual and $60 for a congregation (for up to five people) includes all five sessions. There will be no recording, so we hope you can attend!

Cost: $25 individual, $60 for a congregational group

Dates/Times: The sessions are all at 6:45 PM – 8:00 Central, on:

* January 27  *  February 3  *  February 10  *  February 17  *  February 24
