Gathered Here is a broad-reaching initiative of our UUA to cast a new vision of the Free Church. The UUA Board and President Morales invite all Unitarian Universalists to shape our common aspirations and to articulate a new vision of our ministries.
Beginning in October and for 16 months, one-on-one, in small groups within and between congregations, guided conversations will lift up who we are at our best. Participants will be asked to think about their faith experience and of meaningful, even transforming moments in our communities. By reflecting on how those positive experiences are relevant to our future, we will create a new vision for Unitarian Universalism.
This is your quintessential “bottom-up” inquiry. The goals are “to inform and deepen our collective understanding of congregational values and aspiration” as a way to shape a compelling vision for our Association’s future. Your participation will help us to think more clearly about what impact we seek to have within our congregations and among our communities.
Lead facilitators have been recruited. Group facilitators are being recruited and trained this month. If you would like to join that team, let me know directly (or complete the Volunteer Application). Meanwhile, talk with your minister or congregational leaders to plan now for your congregation members to participate personally and at a congregationally or cluster based event.
I look forward to learning of your Vision/s! Rev. Kenn
