#271 | Whitney Shuttleworth | Earth-Centered Left Out

Submission 271
Whitney Shuttleworth
Unitarian Universalist Church of Akron (Fairlawn, OH) 6733

What is your suggestion or idea?

I’m concerned about earth centered religious tradition being left out. There was a strong Wiccan and Pagan aspect to my UU church growing up, it’s very important to me that those traditions are not lost, or worse are intentionally excluded.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

I’m concerned about earth centered religious tradition being left out. There was a strong Wiccan and Pagan aspect to my UU church growing up, it’s very important to me that those traditions are not lost, or worse are intentionally excluded. We need to respect all traditions that make UUism what it is.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

We haven’t been provided with space to discuss such thing amount our congregation.

I agree that earth-centered religions should be clearly included.

I agree! I’m got a bit of pagan in my journey. I also have science. I also have respect for Indigenous traditions. I think earth-centered traditions have an important aspect for UUs to bridge between different perspectives. I do think this source is an important one!
