Adult Faith Formation
The search for the truth is a lifelong project. Our beliefs and understanding often change over time. This is wisdom.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Durango offers classes for parents to support them in the work of raising their children, for adults as they learn to navigate life’s difficult times and to explore theology, world religions, and our own ethics and values.
A Self Paced Class
Examining Whiteness is a Unitarian Universalist curriculum targeted to white individuals and groups who want to further their white anti-racist identities. The curriculum covers such topics as the history of white supremacy in the United States, the shaping of white identity by racism, white power and privilege, and developing a positive white identity. This is a self-paced class with Zoom meet ups as needed. The curriculum includes sections on:
- The History of White Supremacy in the United States
- The Emotional Lives of White People
- Racial Identity Development
- Racial Identity Journey
- White Power and Privilege
- Developing a Positive White Identity
The class is self paced supported with Zoom meet-ups. Enroll here.
Owning Your Religious Past
If you came to Unitarian Universalism from a different faith, you may be interested in our upcoming class, Owning Your Religious Past. This three-session, 90 minute class will take place on Mondays, April 19, 26 and May 3 at 6:30.
Many of us come to Unitarian Universalism from other religions; often there have been several stops along the path into our congregations. Some of us bring with them angry and unresolved feelings about experiences in other religious institutions, others have warm memories. Some move easily into an identity as a Unitarian Universalist; others experience a traumatic estrangement from family and from the center of their culture.
Because we are often more certain of what we left in another religion than what we bring forward from it, some tools are needed to help us make connections and bridges between our religious past and present. This class is designed to help UUs understand and reconcile their past faith with Unitarian Universalism. It is for longtime and life-long Unitarian Universalists and the very newest to our faith.
Covenant Circles – Small Group Ministry
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Durango believes strongly in the importance of small group ministry. Covenant Circles is our small group ministry program. These are deep sharing groups of covenanted members who meet regularly to explore topics, often from our Soul Matters partners.
Covenant Circles meet for a finite period of time and then re-form into new groups. This refreshing of group membership allows deep relationships to form between many members and provides changing diversity of theology to the groups. All members are encouraged to be part of Covenant Circles.
Please contact us here if you are interested in participating in a Covenant Circle.
