Sunday Forum: “A Critique of ‘Widening the Circle of Concern'”


2022-01-16 09:30 2022-01-16 10:30 America/New_York Sunday Forum: “A Critique of ‘Widening the Circle of Concern'”

Presented by Steve Farthing The Unitarian Universalist Association’s report, “Widening the Circle of Concern,” asserts that radical changes are needed because “what is at stake is nothing less than the future of our faith.” Those changes include UUA and congregational governance, our interactions with the world at large, and even how we view and understand ourselves. If we are staking our future on this report, a closer look is warranted. What could change? Are those changes justified? How might they affect our congregation? Participants can expect a wide-ranging discussion and more questions than answers. “Widening the Circle of Concern” is not the last word from the UUA. Steve Farthing and his wife, Jeanne, have been members of the UUFP for 16 years. Steve is best known for his past efforts on the UUFP’s annual pledge drive (he is responsible for the bad puns and silly skits). Their children, Susannah and Ethan, attended the UUFP; Ethan was a camper, cook, and counselor at The Mountain for eight summers. Steve works as an electrical engineer for the U. S. Coast Guard.
