Unitarian Universalism has a rich tradition of female religious leaders that we’ll learn about, as do a few other faiths.  Women often bring a different voice and vision to theological discussions and practices, but are still not commonly heard.

” Throughout history,” says Kahl, “women’s voices have been missing in religious doctrine and discussion.  What has women brought to our religious past?”

Youth and adult programs begin at 10 am.  In adult discussion, we’ll be discussing the topic, “Rent or Own? ” The new sharing economy values access over ownership, and considering individual views on the notion.
