New Minister Start Up Workshop for Reverend Mansfield March 2nd, 2019

New Beginnings — New Hopes — Getting There

The Reverend Kenneth Gordon Hurto, former Unitarian Universalist Association Southern Region field staff team Lead, will be with us on Saturday, March 2nd, 8:30am — 12:30pm. He will meet separately with our Minister and the Board that afternoon.

All UUFEC members are invited to participate in the morning workshop. We’ll take a short trip down memory lane to discern any patterns that shape our values and culture. Kenn will lead us in discerning the core values that give our ministries vitality and excitement, and how they tie into the work we expect of our Minister and lay leaders. More broadly, we’ll have a free-wheeling conversation on a few big questions:

  • What have been the best times in our congregations and how can we have more of them?
  • If Unitarian Universalism is an answer to the human problem, what is the question?
  • If our congregation were to really succeed in its work, how would we be different? What difference could we make in the larger community?
  • How can we make the best use of our Minister’s gifts and talents?

Please let Secretary Rece Howley (secretary@uufec.com) know if you plan to attend.
