This is the first in a series of workshops designed to explore the UUA’s Congregational Study Action Issue, Escalating Inequality.  This workshop begins the exploration by asking, Why is it important to talk about money?

Participants think about the meaning of money and the ways one’s personal money issues can be a factor in living a fulfilling life. They consider the variety and complexity of individual and social dimensions of our relationships with money. Participants develop a productive way of being together to explore money issues. They begin to develop an intellectual framework for subsequent learning and a crucial emotional foundation on which to continue individual and interpersonal reflective work.
