Please join us on Sunday (15 September 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class — UU Elevator Speech.
You may be familiar with the concept of an “elevator speech” — a concise way of explaining something in the time it would take to ride a couple of floors on an elevator.
For the next three Sundays, we’ll help you come up with one of your own, to talk to others about our Unitarian Universalist faith.
This is a part of the series Faith Forward: From Visitor to Leader.
The UU Elevator Speech class will give you the sense of empowerment and ownership that reminds you that you are the church.
This week — Session 1: “It’s Not a Credo.”
We know that in our Unitarian Universalist congregation we have a wide variety of beliefs about God (or not god or gods), the Universe, and the great questions of life — all here together under the same roof.
A credo is a statement reflecting its direct translation from the Latin “I believe” and that will be different for each one of us. Don’t worry — later on we can work on one of those as well.
At the same time, we do have a common history and a distinct Unitarian Universalist theology that we can share with others.
Your elevator speech is the story of who we are as a faith tradition, and we can’t wait to hear it.
