What to do with the religious baggage?

  • August 12, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • UUCG

Whether or not you were raised religious,  since religion is so prevalent in our society, you probably have been (or are) burdened with some religious baggage*.  We'll discuss what some of that baggage might be.  What needs to go, what should be modified and what might be kept.

*Baggage-ideas, beliefs, practices, attitudes, prejudices that persist and impede our journey.

    So sorry to have been unable to make it tonight, after responding that I would. Hope some of the attendees will share the highlights, as I have baggage and it doesn't have wheels!

    I was raised Unitarian Universalist in the sixties and seventies. I have to laugh at all my religious friends and there crutch. Like to come but Mondays are a conflict for me. Hope we actually have gust in the pub this month

    We kind of cycle through topics, twisting them some. We had some grief/death themes somewhat recently so we might want to wait on that one.

      No problem. I had looked back through some previous meetups for topics but didn't go too far.

    Another possible idea for discussion is dealing with grief in a non-religious way. I posted a link in the FB page to Grief Beyond Belief, a support group for nonbelievers.

    I would love to discuss more words or terms that still make us cringe and how we can embrace them more humanly. I have ONE that still makes me ill to this day. Our last topic on spirituality made me think of how religion has monopolized so many terms and words.
