Let’s Delve into the 7 UU Principles Together!

You’re invited to an exciting new program hosted by Camp de Benneville Pines and offered by our own Amy Brunell. Those of us at camp for our October weekend had a preview of this and wanted more. Here it is.

UU Principles — How do they go beyond an ideal?

Come join workshop leader Amy Brunell as we focus on the seven UU Principles and consider the proposed eighth principle. This 4-week virtual camp begins on Sunday, March 6th at 5:00 pm, with the final session on March 27th. Everyone 18 years of age and older is welcome to participate.

A Camp Connect Workshop with
Facilitator Amy Brunell

When Unitarians and Universalists came together in 1961, they adopted six principles, really our values, of what Unitarian Universalism strives to live by. However, in the 1970’s women UU’s started a movement to change the more sexist language. In 1984, the original language of the original six were reworked, and a seventh principle added that were almost unanimously agreed upon.

Now we’re considering an eighth principal to be included. How do these principles play a part in congregational life? How could they play a part in camp life? Could we use our principles as a guide when we don’t agree on something? Can they help us be more compassionate when we don’t agree? Could they be a sort of guide in how we carry ourselves with fellow humans?

Starting Sunday, March 6th, at 5:00 pm for four weeks, we will dive into two principles per workshop session. Workshops will be presented via Zoom and facilitated by Amy Brunell, one of our Camp Deans and a Professional Facilitator in navigating stimulating discussions.

Attend one, some, or all! We’ll focus on two principles each week, in sequential order. These workshops will be held at 5 pm on four consecutive Sundays:  March 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th     CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

We look forward to seeing you at Camp Connect, your camp away from Camp.
