|Who Are Our Neighbors|
The UUMA began a series of collegial conversations in the fall of 2010 called "Whose Are We?”, centered on theology and spiritual depth. Over the last two years, this program, has proven to be a meaningful and effective means for continuing education and deepening relationship for colleagues. The success of the "Whose Are We?” program convinced the UUMA Board and CENTER committee that it would be wise to have a conversation of depth and meaning for ministers every other year.
"Who Are Our Neighbors?”, a program to explore multiculturalism and develop our intercultural competencies, is our next UUMA-wide conversation. Growing and deepening our capacity for successful multicultural ministries and stronger intercultural relationships in collegial community is critical to the fulfillment of our vision for the UUMA, for Unitarian Universalism, and for our world. Thirty UUMA facilitators have been trained by Beth Zemsky and Phyllis Braxton from One Ummah Consulting, and will be leading trainings in chapters and regional gatherings around the continent through the spring of 2014. Make sure your chapter/region schedules this exciting and important program as soon as possible!
