“The Cusp of a Moment: Discerning What It Means to Be Unitarian Universalist”
Speaking UUFP President Bek Wheeler
As Unitarian Universalists, we honor the change of our earthly seasons. Now, we recognize a different turning — a fresh season within Unitarian Universalism itself. For only the second time since our Association formed in 1961, we are re-seeing, re-appraising and re-writing the statements of what it means to be UU. Bek Wheeler will introduce and share the UUA proposal to move from Principles and Sources to Values and Inspirations. As you contemplate these new envisionings, what speaks to you? What resonates? What perplexes? What inspires or invites you? Come, come, whoever you are! Share in this new season of discerning and owning Unitarian Universalism.
Bek Wheeler is a Professor of English Linguistics at Christopher Newport University. She has been an atheist since childhood and a UU for forty years. Bek currently serves as UUFP President and lives happily in Newport News with her best companion, Delta, Labrador extraordinaire.
