Rev. Diana Jordan Allende on “UUism as a Movement”

Our speaker will explore questions often raised among Unitarian Universalists: “Are we a religion…a social club…a debate society…a center for social activism?”

Rev. Diana Jordan Allende suggests, “We might be a movement.” Join us Sunday as we all ponder what that means. Rev. Allende is minister emerita of the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Alabama. She graduated from Agnes Scott College in 1990 and earned a Master’s of Divinity in 1993 from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. She was ordained in 1994, and she has served as a UU  in Auburn and in Atlanta.

Our Sunday services typically included music, a short meditation, affirmations of the Seven UU Principles and opportunities to offer comments and ask questions. The centerpiece is a talk by a speaker, often from outside our Fellowship, such as Rev. Allende.

Here’s a rundown of this Sunday’s activities:

  • 9:30 a.m. Adult Religious Education.
  • 10:00 a.m. UU Singers practice.
