Sister Souurce Conversations – Dan McKanan, Erin Aslami, Qiyamah Rahman
A congregation’s history can oftentimes greatly impact the present and future of the congregation. Therefore, knowing the history of one’s congregation is often as important as knowing who you are as an individual. The Circle of Congregational Historians and Archivists is invested in Unitarian Universalists knowing their congregation’s history and ways to research and access that history. The Circle was created in 2022 when the UU History and Heritage Society and the UU Collegium merged. As a project of the UU Studies Network, the Circle supports deepening engagement with UU historical, theological and ethical knowledge and practices from academic and independent scholars, lay leaders, religious professionals and students. In this video, Dr. Dan McKanan and Erin Aslami provide information and insights about the Circle of Congregational Historians and Archivists and why research is so important.
