What do UUs believe? Though our beliefs are diverse, we do have a shared history and a “theological house” we all inhabit. Based on A House for Hope: The Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-first Century by John A. Buehrens and Rebecca Ann Parker, this 6-session program invites participants to meaningfully engage with liberal theology from a Unitarian Universalist perspective. “Hope rises. It rises from the heart of life, here and now, beating with joy and sorrow. Hope longs. It longs for good to be affirmed, for justice and love to prevail, for suffering to be alleviated, and for life to flourish in peace. . . . To thrive, hope requires a home, a sustaining structure of community, meaning, and ritual. Only with such a habitation can hope manifest the spiritual stamina it needs to confront evil, endure through trouble, and “hold fast to that which is good.” —John Buehrens and Rebecca Ann Parker.
