The UU Prophets Project is a
two-day seminar focused on the intersections of radicalism and Unitarian
Universalism, involving both an examination of our long UU history of social
action and contemporary conversations with radical elders who have had long-term
involvement in social justice movements and UUism.

The workshop explores three
theses:

1. Love Does Not Punish:
Looking at the vision Universalism presents to an essentially Calvinist
society.

2. We Thrive on the Margins
of Empires: Exploring where the heresies of Unitarianism and Universalism
historically were able to develop.

3. One Heart, One Voice, One
Vote: The role Unitarianism and Universalism have played in the expansion of
democracy.

The workshop will be led by
Neil McLean (First UU San Francisco) and Colin Bossen (Meadville Lombard
Student), with special guests John Trudell and tentatively Winona LaDuke.

The registration fee is
$15-$50. Scholarships are available with
special consideration given to those traveling from outside the

Boston

The workshop will run
Friday, March 10th, from 2:00 – 5:00 pm and Saturday, March 11th, from 9:00 am
