Part 2

The UUA released the second short video in the exciting series, "A Religion for Our Time."

Episode two, "Better Together: Creating Congregational Partnerships," shows how the ministers of three remote Washington State congregations have partnered to create the Living Tradition Institute of the West Puget Sound. By offering team-led programs, they've expanded the religious education and social justice opportunities in each church and helped members connect with other Unitarian Universalists.

Part 3

The Unitarian Universalist Association released the third short video in the exciting new series, "A Religion for Our Time."

Episode Three, "A Building Campaign for All the Right Reasons," spotlights the building campaign of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Elkhart (UUFE). In a small Indiana town that has been battered by the recession, the members of UUFE knew they were the only liberal religious voice in the area. That knowledge made them determined to go ahead with a building campaign, and a very successful one at that!

Episode Four, "The Theology of Star Wars!" presents a creative approach to youth programming from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Wilmington (UUWF), North Carolina. What's a compelling way to engage teenagers in a deep, yearlong discussion of theology and Unitarian Universalist principles? How about a curriculum designed around the Star Wars movies? It's working like a charm at UUWF.

The Unitarian Universalist Association released the fifth short video in the exciting new series, "A Religion for Our Time."

Episode Five, "Celebration Worship Service," explores the creation of an alternative worship service at the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church (ORUUC) in Tennessee. When several congregants at ORUUC realized two years ago that they yearned for a worship service with more music and interaction, they started working with the minister to create a "celebration service." They call it a work in progress.

Episode Six of the "A Religion for Our Time" series describes how the First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego, California, transformed itself from a graying congregation into a multigenerational one.

Part 7

The Unitarian Universalist Association released the sixth short video in the exciting new series, "A Religion for Our Time."

Episode Seven, "Multicultural Worship," illustrates how worship at All Souls Church, Unitarian, in Washington, DC, is designed to serve a diverse community. Worship planners at All Souls ask themselves every single week, "How will we reflect in worship the experience and traditions of many different cultures?" Honoring the multiculturalism of the congregation and the neighborhood is an intentional process at the heart of All Souls. And it's a process that can be used in any Unitarian Universalist congregation.
