October is Spiritual Development Month at UUMA Connect. What's new and what's tried and true in the work of leading the spiritual development of our congregations? Connect will be where colleagues can learn together about this important work.
Blogs on deck are on Congregational conversations about White Supremacy, On-Line Religious Education and Working Collaboratively with Religious Education Professionals. And Wiki's too. Last month, a few wiki's got started, but it is a new form of sharing collegial wisdom. Wiki's will be started on Best Practices for Newcomer Education, User Reviews of Curriculums, Experiences with Moving from Children's RE to Lifespan Faith Formation in congregations. Wiki's are a way for colleagues to share their experiences on Connect, where the accumulated knowledge will be permanent, revisable and searchable. When you share your wisdom on a Connect Wiki, it will become a resource for many new ministers in time. Remember any member of UUMA can start a wiki-page on any subject on which they think we should collect and record our collegial wisdom. Next month: November will be Pastoral Care on UUMA Connect.
Chapters are welcome to 'adopt' a monthly theme by contacting the Connect leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
