This year's featured program: THE SHAPES OF LIBERAL RELIGION
Does faith have a shape? Do faith communities have a geometry? Let's find out through a series of actions, reflections, interactions, ponderings, and challenges that build on your own personal experiences seen through the lens of shared community. Come prepared to think about the ways in which being in liberal religious communities of memories and hope, values and vision invites us to be mindful and a little daring about the architecture of our faith.
Our presenter is The Rev. Dr. Randolph W.B. Becker ("Randy") who is virtually a life-long Universalist Unitarian and is now in his 43rd year of Parish and Religious Education ministry in our movement (currently serving ONE ISLAND FAMILY - the Southernmost Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Key West, Conch Republic). He was the founder of the Sophia Fahs Religious Education Camp on Long Island, NY, which is celebrating its 35th Anniversary in August. Author, educator, preacher, father, grandfather, and spiritual tourist/guide, Randy draws energy from his deep roots and his broad wings.
