One of the greatest predictors of a successful ministry is for a clergy person to be supported by, and accountable to, a small group of colleagues. This is especially true for those ministers called towards social justice work! The UUMA is experimenting with Collegial Small Groups this winter and invite you to participate. We know small groups are important and needed. Our hope is to find out how to use technology to reduce the barriers of participation in this kind of group.
Theological Ground of Social Witness:
This online small group will dive into the Unitarian Universalist grounding for our call to social justice. The small group will be convened by of Tom Schade, a minister on CENTER and the writer of The Lively Tradition, and Kathleen McTigue, Director of the UU College of Social justice. This small group will explore our theologies of social change and practical ways to bring these theologies more explicitly into our ministries. This will be a committed group meeting the last Tuesday of every month for six months, starting Tuesday January 26th from 4:00-5:30 pm EST. There will be readings, some invited speakers, and lots of collegial conversation. Join the excitement, as we faithfully learn about our collective call to justice.
