Sunday, January 29, 10:15 am. Fellowship Meeting. Topic: A Journey of Questioning, Identity, Truth, and Spiritual Activism: How One Queer Chick Became a Flamboyant UU. Presentation by C.M. Hall. Having grown up in a strictly Catholic home, CM began to question her commitment to the faith and began down a spiritual path that intersected with her own emerging sexual identity and politics. When the UU’s came to “recruit” LGBTQ folks, CM realized she’d come home where her identity and questions were celebrated and the crux of the UU tradition. This led to many years in positions of leadership and passion in this intentional community of social justice activists, err… church congregants. Come hear more about her journey of questioning, identity, truth, and spiritual activism.
