Being an Accountable People, led by Rev. Sarah Gibb Millspaugh


January 17, 2024    
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM


Covenants require a combination of accountability, responsibility, humility, and the willingness to go deep both within ourselves, and within the community. How a congregation balances the values of the worth and dignity of all the parties is one of the challenges: how do you value the needs of those who have been harmed compared to those who have inflicted the harm? Does it matter if the harm is intentional or unintentional? How do we understand the impact of dominant culture on the issue, which has too often equated accountability with punishment? And how do we let go of the dynamics of perpetuating shame in the process of accountability?

This event is offered in preparation for Rev. Millspaugh’s workshop on Jan. 21, “Co-Creating Our Covenant.” Rev. Sarah Gibb Millspaugh is the primary contact for UUFD from the Pacific Western Region of the UUA. Her visit is organized and sponsored by the UUFD Transition Team. Everyone is encouraged to attend, to get to know Rev. Sarah better, to work with one another in this important process of covenant, and to suggest ways of looking ahead toward UUFD’s next minister.
