As Unitarian Universalists, we commit to living our deepest values every day wherever we are. When the world around us does not reflect our values, this can be especially challenging.
We are each called to live our values in particular ways. Some raise money or consciousness, some advocate, some take direct action, some provide service, and some do it all. Some of us work together on congregational or cluster teams, some work independently. We choose different levels of risk and focus in different spheres: extended family, church, service organizations, the public square.
However we are called to live our values, we need community to support us. At their best, congregations provide inspiration, encouragement, and insight that allow us to grow our souls, conscience and courage as we act on the commitments of our faith.
In this interactive workshop, we will explore together some concrete ways our congregations and the cluster might do that more creatively, intentionally and joyfully.
Our facilitator is Meck Groot, Congregational Consultant/Justice Ministries Lead for the New England Region UUA. has worked for many years at the intersection of faith and social change. As Justice Ministries Lead for the region, she inspires and supports congregational leaders for vital, faith-centered justice ministry within and beyond the congregation through spiritual leadership practice.
