Event Description

The oneness of God and the divinity of all. Religious pluralism and the truth inherent in multiple traditions. Reason and science as necessary elements of faith. The constant search for and revelation of meaning. Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. Sounds like a pretty good way to explain some of the essentials of Unitarian Universalist theology, right? Some of it comes straight out of our principles! But these phrases are not just about Unitarian Universalism, they also describe central ideas in Islam. They represent just some of the intersecting pieces within these two traditions. Curious to learn more about these and other overlapping theological ideas that create "Uuslim?" This course will explore scriptural excerpts, theological analyses, and iconic writings in both Unitarian Universalism and Islam, and place them in dialogue with one another. No book purchases will be required as any readings will be distributed electronically or in paper printouts.

Facilitated by Ranwa Hammamy
