The mission of Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church is to promote spiritual growth, religious freedom, and ethical action.
We work together as a church to transform ourselves, our community, and our world by sharing love, pursuing justice, and seeking wonder.
We embrace diversity within the congregation’s membership and in theology. We are committed to being a vital and growing progressive congregation within our larger community.
In a culture where gender is polarized and that which is perceived as female is valued less than that which is perceived as male, the focus of this presentation will be on honoring that which has been defined as "female". We will honor the characteristics of nurturing, empathy, patience, vulnerability - characteristics that have falsely be named 'feminine' when in reality that are beautifully human. There will be discussion about the danger of gender polarizing and the price we pay when we resist gender fluidity.
