Long Strange Trip--UU History Movie
Long Strange Trip - UU History Movie and Discussion with Rev. Emily Gage
Want to learn more about our Unitarian Universalist history? (1961-present) Come watch a fun film with UU friends! This film tells the story of the century-long “courtship” between Unitarianism and Universalism as a classic love story - “boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl.” It details how they “courted” each other, sought out other partners, and finally consummated the merger. It discusses how Humanism helped bring the two movements closer together, and the role that Liberal Religious Education, especially Sophia Lyon Fahs, had on laying the groundwork for the merger. It then follows Unitarian Universalism through the 50 years of its existence and ends with some personal comments on what its future might hold. You do not need to have seen any other parts to benefit from this viewing. Film will be shown from 7-8, discussion from 8-9.
