The UUCSW Board of Trustees is offering two seats (at no charge) to our congregation to attend this UUA (NE Region) seminar. We have two open seats to go to this event with others already signed up to continue to support a new vision for UUCSW.
From the UUA:
“This introductory workshop is available so Spiritual Leadership becomes an embedded congregational practice.”
From the UUA - in reference to this seminar:
“Spiritual Leadership is an orientation and practice by which individuals and congregations create, sustain, and restore Beloved Community in which everyone experiences belonging, wholeness, greater equity, and an increased willingness to risk on behalf of our values. Spiritual Leadership is needed everywhere — our homes, schools, places of work, neighborhoods, communities. The call to claim Spiritual Leadership is not just for “leaders” but for everyone.
As covenanted communities, congregations are perhaps especially suited to nourish and support it. Consider attending if you and your congregation are looking for ways for congregational life to be:
- less about volunteer chores and more about soulful engagement with your faith;
- less about the worry of not having enough volunteers, money or time and more about finding energy and meaning in the gifts already present; or
- less about the business of church and more about the transformative power of communities living their values in ways that challenge dominant culture — both within and beyond the congregation.”
Please let Janet Purney-Balabanis (
) know if you would like to attend by October 24th. The first two to respond will be given the seats for the seminar. (Refreshments will be provided at the seminar. Plan to bring a brown bag lunch.)
