Pocatello UU Fellowship strives to be a Welcoming Congregation to people of all journeys in life. Sometimes people call Unitarian Universalism the ‘faith of choice’. This is an apt nickname because so many adults find compatibility in the principles, covenantal and justice focused programs Unitarian Universalism provides. Also, this choice of faith fits for many who have painful experiences in their faiths of origin or of their wider communities. Many carry memories and experiences of marginalization, bullying, and oppression perpetrated by people who claim their behaviors are justified by their religious doctrine.

Some of us also may strive to respect all people and diversity of faith, yet we are not immune to the vitriol of hate groups claiming religion as their right to harm others. We consequently develop internal biases that threaten to keep us from being our best selves.

Healing the Wounds of Our Religious Past is a four-session series workshop designed to provide participants with space for examining their past experiences or biases with religion.

Participants should plan to attend all or most of the sessions, especially the first and last. Missing more than one session is not recommended.

Dates are first and third Sundays of March and April, 2020:
March 1st & 15th
April 5th & 19th
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM (Our worship gatherings follow, at 4:00 PM. All are welcome to stay for the services!)

Dress comfortably for light movement in an indoor space, private journaling and discussion. Supplies will be provided for you. Signing up is recommended, by completing the contact form.
