In person meeting at UUFD
Building on the themes of Fall 2023 at UUFD, this workshop will harvest the wisdom that’s been emerging about how UUFD participants are called to be together: how we approach conflict, what we promise when destructive behavior emerges, what we can do when we’ve caused harm (accidentally or on purpose), how we can co-create an environment of support and trust. We’ll ground our exploration in reality, exploring some “pain points” in UUFD’s past just enough to get a picture of interpersonal dynamics can be hard to address in religious community. And we’ll build the framework of a covenant that we can make with each other, a covenant that helps us to be the people that we are truly called to be. Additionally, this covenant will lay a good foundation for our new professional ministry, and all of our shared ministry in the years to come. Childcare will be provided.
Rev. Sarah Gibb Millspaugh is the primary contact for UUFD from the Pacific Western Region of the UUA. She will join us in person for this event, which is organized and sponsored by the UUFD Transition Team. All UUFD members and friends are 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.
