Creative Conversations

Creative Conversations
How do we identify ourselves and make ourselves known in our community? Join us at BUUF for an evening of Creative Conversations when we’ll watch some UUA videos which attempt to define UUism in all its various incarnations. Rev. Jim McConnell is working on producing a video specifically relating to BUUF which could become part of our website and used during our AllComers evenings when we describe ourselves to recent visitors and anyone in the community who is interested in learning about us. Please join us and share your religious journey and wisdom so we can be more inclusive in promoting ourselves. Some light snacks will be provided.
