WHAT: MINISTRY DAYS 2012
WHO: MEMBERS OF UUMA (and their spouses/partners)
WHEN: Monday, June 18 - Wednesday, June 20, 2012 (schedule inside!)
WHERE: Phoenix Convention Center
WHAT’S NEW: This is the first year we return to the two day format of former Ministry Days in order to gather and reflect on issues of Social Justice in our ministries and in preparation for the 2012 Social Justice General Assembly. We gather for a welcome and reception on Monday night and begin on Tuesday morning. Our goals for this Ministry Days are: to help ministers be theologically and spiritually prepared for "Justice GA” as well as their own public ministries; to nurture ministers in our time together and offer many opportunities for meaningful connection; and to give colleagues useful tools to take home with them. A terrific program has been planned: Click here to see!
