Focusing on how the larger cultural tensions of our time impact our UU communities and congregations, these 3 workshops include ways to prepare and respond thoughtfully and with intention, along with opportunities to share your concerns, ideas, and initiatives. And don’t worry – it’s not all work! There will be nurturing and nourishing space as well.
Session 1: Locating Ourselves in a Changing Culture
We’ll begin by identifying global and local themes that impact our congregations and communities. Focussing on right relations and covenantal practices, this conversation will identify concerns and possible responses. Resources for proactive options will be shared.
Session 2: Building Relationships Toward a Common Good
Sometimes we feel like we are alone in our justice efforts. In this session we’ll think about partnerships to build mutual support, safety, and intentionality into our work. Resources for safety and preparedness will be shared.
Session 3: Practices for Resilience & Renewal
We’re doing big and important and difficult work together. Part 3 will share practices, resources, and tools for sustaining our collective well-being, including a shared ritual for all who are gathered.
