Upcoming international SkypeCast on U*U theology

The UUA International Office has informed us about an upcoming SkypeCast on November 28, 2007, entitled "Continuing the Theological Dialogue". Time is 20:00 to 21:00 EST.

At General Assembly ‘07 a theological dialogue between a UU Minister and Scholar, Rev. Paul Rasor, and the Bishop of the Transylvanian Unitarian Church, Rev. Arpad Szabo, was held. It marked an important step forward for grounding our U/U international engagement theologically. This dialogue will be continued and broadened during this month’s SkypeCast.

Participants will include Rev. Derrick Parriat, Vice President of the Unitarian Union of North East India and Rev. Nihal Attanayake, Chairman of Faith and Action Department, UU Church of the Philippines

Presentations by Rev. Parriat and Rev. Attanayake will include responses to the following questions:

What is the basic theological “grounding” of your church group?

Are there emerging theological issues for your church group?

What does your church group believe U/Uism shares internationally?

Presentations will be followed by a Q&A with all SkypeCast participants.

Although the schedule time is inconvenient for Europeans, we hope that Asians and Americans will enjoy this conversation.

Welcome to my blog for my 2-year period as the new Secretary of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists! My intention is to provide information and some flavor of what's going on in the Unitarian and Universalist religion internationally.
