Communication within the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has generally been from headquarters and the districts to the congregations. We have used television very little to reach out to a broader public audience. With increasing use of the Internet, communication patterns are changing, since inter-church communication has become cheap and easy.
- "Our congregations are isolated from one another, with no expectation of significant relationships and exchanges of resources. To a large extent, our communication are old style and hierarchical, with information flowing down from the UUA and districts to the congregations."
- "Partnerships among district, the UUA, and congregations or clusters of congregation to provide . . . video segments, religious education courses, and church administration courses could be beneficial to all parties."
- "As the Reverend John Wolf says, 'We let the age of television pass us by. If we don't get busy, we'll miss the electronic age as well!'"
- How have you learned about the communications developed by the UUA or other cooperating groups?
- Is there a need for more outreach to the public?
- If so, should that be done by the UUA or by some other entity?
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
