Our Samhain Circle is titled “Communion With the Beloved Dead” and it will be Saturday, November 1. As usual, gathering begins at 7:00 PM and the ritual begins promptly at 7:30.
Our goal is to produce a mission and vision statement that will set the high-level direction for CUUPS and for building a shared sense of identity and purpose. We want to include all our stakeholders: CUUPS members, UU-friendly Pagans, and Pagan-friendly UUs – if you have an opinion on what CUUPS is and what it should be, we want to hear from you.
The first survey is open now and we encourage you to complete it:
This first survey focuses on demographics and identity. It is designed to find out who we are, how we see ourselves, how we relate to CUUPS, other Paganisms, and UUism, and what we think/believe about various concepts that frequently come up in Pagan conversations.
The question of what we do will be the focus of the second survey.
We want to identify our common principles and values. Who are we? What do we do? What is UU Paganism as it’s actually practiced? Is there something unique that can be called UU Paganism? Our foundation will be built on who and what we are, here and now, warts and all.
Then we’ll talk about who and what we want to become. What do we keep? What do we change? And perhaps most importantly, what do we want CUUPS to be and do strongly enough to commit to doing the work necessary to create it?
More details about the revisioning process can be found on the CUUPS webpage:
Please share the survey with anyone who would have an opinion on Paganism within Unitarian Universalism.
