It’s difficult to be an open-hearted, see-the-world-as-it-is, and try-to-make-it-better UU. The issues before us are urgent, often entrenched, and always somehow requiring more than we have the time to give. As leaders in our congregations or in our communities, we live the premise that we will make a bigger difference when we work together. The problem with that is that the work we do developing our strategies, organizing our teams, marketing our events, and connecting with the broader world takes time and energy and, unfortunately, all the organizing and managing often is not the work that feeds our justice souls. For most of us, there has been a calculus to figure. Do I contagiously share my justice work with other UUs, calling them into my broader community involvements? Or do I put... More »

East Shore Social Justice Ministry Teams Last Updated on 2014-09-29 17:00:16 Social Justice Ministry Teams For PNWD Discovery Day, September 27, 2014 1.Name. What is the proposed name for your ministry team? It can be as plain or as imaginative as you like, however the more imaginative you are, the less people will instantly know what you do. 2.Purpose. What is the purpose of your ministry team? What will your proposed ministry do to improve the state of the world? One or two sentences. 3.A ministry team must be made up of at least five people. One person is a lone voice in the wilderness with little connection. Two people can have a conversation. Three people may be able to pull something off for a little while.

But five people can represent the broad-base of the community and five people can achieve anything if they set their hearts and minds to it. Who... More »
