Got Purpose? Defining Identity and Responding to Call
Presenter: Douglas Zelinski
Part two of a two-part series flips mission development on its ear. Great mission statements don’t produce inspired congregations. Rather, inspired congregations rooted in a clear Unitarian Universalit (UU) identity and a sense of “calling” produce great mission statements. Come explore why discerning a UU identity and a call to liberalism comes first. Part one: Rooting Our Missions in Certainty.
