We come to the Unitarian Universalist Church through many paths. Some come on a whim, others do serious research, check out our website first, or are told by a friend that “you’re a UU” before knowing about the church. Whether we never belonged to a faith community before or have out-grown our faith roots, we all come to UUCJ to “spread our wings” and explore new spiritual realms without condemnation. Most of us are adoptees to the UU tradition and may have limited knowledge of our historical roots as a faith. UU 101 provides that underpinning- not for us to cling to the past- but for us to understand our past as we build our future.
The UU 101 Course consists of four classes and it is best if you can attend all four. They will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm in the Social Hall on Jan 10, 17, 24 and 31, 2017. We will learn about our UU history starting from the earliest heretics in Christianity right up to today: its spiritual and ethical development; where our covenant and principles come from; and our own church in Jacksonville, begun more than 100 years ago with its rich history including an important role in the civil rights movement.
