All Souls Unitarian Universalist Build Your Own Theology workshops

The cool thing about All Souls' Build Your Own Theology workshops is that when you finish the ten weekly sessions, you have your very own credo. You can frame it, you can iron it onto a T-shirt or you can post it on your Web site. But the whole point of the workshops is figuring out what you believe. No one will be preaching to you here, and the Bible is just one of many books used, along with works by Henry David Thoreau and Annie Dillard. "It's an opportunity to get more explicit with yourself about your beliefs. Members sort of revisit major questions about life and God and meaning and truth," says coordinator Ted Otteson. "This course is even taken by people who consider themselves atheists, because everybody has some idea of an ultimate of some kind." Gee, with all that nondogmatic discourse, it's no surprise that Unitarian Universalism has its roots in Europe of the 1500s -- the period known as the Enlightenment.
