The UUA Congregational Life Facebook page currently features links to articles on the following topics, written by staff and lay leaders of various UUA districts:
• Communication: Keeping it Real—Taking steps to ensure that information is shared openly and as widely as possible. Using transparency to defeat rumors, gossip, secrets, and third-party complaints.
• Another Bridge to Nowhere?—A call to action to make the transition from youth to young adulthood within Unitarian Universalism feel like a bridge to somewhere by coming up with innovative ways to keep young adults interested and involved.
• Why is Everyone Talking About Mission?—Helping leaders define a congregation’s purpose and mission. The article notes that many people now no longer join congregations just for warm and friendly relationships, but rather they want to know that the congregation has a purpose and a mission in the larger community and that it can help them find meaning in their lives. Congregational leaders need to be able to define that meaning and purpose.
Check in with the UUA Congregational Life Facebook page frequently for articles about deep discussions taking place in UUA districts about a variety of topics important to congregational leaders.
