Creating Theology Together

Led by Rev. Shawn Gauthier and Kiersten Moore, DLFD

A three part series of retreats and workshops exploring our own theology within, defining the theology that exists among Unitarians, and exploring how we represent our shared theology beyond our congregation.

In response to the well-known Building Your Own Theology by Rev. Dick Gilbert, Rev. John Morehouse wrote a dissertation called Creating Theology Together. In it, he wondered how moving beyond our focus on the individual search for truth and meaning might create space for a shared theology in UU congregations. 

Building Your Own Theology invites individuals to identify their deeply held values, and to build a personal theology based on who they want to be.

Creating Theology Together goes further. It recognizes that Unitarian Universalism offers a theology with deep roots – that also allows individuals room to explore and make choices. … It is intentionally multi-generational. It supports the kind of shared learning that can transform individuals, their congregations, and their work in the world.
