Our living tradition is blooming. We live out our values within our “living tradition” which calls us to question our past, open ourselves to new understanding, and evolve. The purpose of the UUA, our sources, and our principles are transforming. We will explore the proposed revisions and consider our roles in this process as individuals and as a congregation. Join us as we reflect on our “living tradition” from the theological lens of change as a spiritual practice.
