This online course introduces the student to distinctive theological perspectives present within Unitarian Universalist traditions and congregations and equips students to begin to think and write theologically in the context of post-modern religious communities. Especially oriented to students who identify as Unitarian Universalists, this course will encourage participants to form a practice of engaged theological thinking within the context of Unitarian Universalism’s particular perspectives, resources, limits and possibilities. Students who do not identify as Unitarian Universalists will become acquainted with this expression of American progressive post-Christian Protestantism as a site in which to engage theological issues critical to post-modern religious community. Weekly synchronous oral discussion, a-synchronous written discussion threads, reflection papers, and final project.
