Rev. Dr. Amy Rowland the current Director of Create Meaning, and she joined us to explore taking our faith beyond our walls. She taught us about the Unitarian Universalist Association initiative called Congregations and Beyond and how in response to it, the Colorado churches started Create Meaning, a Unitarian Universalist organization that seeks to spread our values in the world by offering online and in-person resources for the "spiritual, but not religious." If you visit the Create Meaning site, you will see that the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley is a sponsor!
Rev. Kelly Dignan and Rev. Kierstin Homblette explored how relationships of all kinds require a leap of faith, especially marriages, and how Unitarian Universalist values are in line with how marriage is changing, especially since the the influx of queer folks into a historically conservative institution. We celebrated marriage equality coming to Colorado. After the service, we had a workshop led by Wendy Howell from One Colorado, a statewide advocacy organization dedicated to securing and protecting equality and opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Coloradans and their families.
Rev. Falconer explored how an agnostic defines faith and lives it out.
Rev. Kelly explored faith as a system for making meaning of life and its events. Everyone needs a faith - a way to make meaning. Sometimes that faith becomes inadequate and needs to be revised. She shared pieces of her own journey and how her faith has changed over time. She referenced the work of David Korten and his article: A New Story for A New Economy.
