Presented by Rev. Andrew Clive Millard UU History 101 is a six-session introduction to the concepts and people from our Unitarian Universalist history. This series approaches history from the starting point of compelling stories, with each session focusing on one or two people and their stories. Participants will explore the questions those people faced and make connections with their own lives and the world around them today. The overarching question is: How can our history be translated into our religious life and practice today?  9/4: A Question of Conscience, with Rev. Andrew In this session, we hear and reflect on the stories of two important figures in our Unitarian history, Michael Servetus and William Ellery Channing, whose inner voices of conscience guided the direction of their lives and ministries.  9/18: A Question of Love, with DRE Joanne In this session, we hear and reflect on the story of George de Benneville, an important figure in our Universalist history, and learn about the concept of universal salvation.  10/2: A Question of Experience, with Rev. Andrew In this session, we hear and reflect on the story of Ralph Waldo Emerson, an important figure in our Unitarian history, and learn about the role of direct experience as a source of religious wisdom.  10/16: A Question of Resilience and Courage, with DRE Joanne In this session, we hear and reflect on the stories of two important figures in our UU history, Olympia Brown the Universalist and Theodore Parker the Unitarian, who worked tirelessly in the mid-nineteenth century on issues of gender and racial injustice and shaped the future of our faith as a result.  11/6: A Question of Identity, with Rev. Andrew In this session, we hear and reflect on the story of the consolidation of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America in the mid-twentieth century to form our Unitarian Universalist Association.  11/20: A Question of Calling, with DRE Joanne In this session, we hear and reflect on the stories of two important modern-day Unitarian Universalists, Lucile Shuck Longview and Bill Sinkford, who were called to make change in our faith in different ways that are still unfolding.
