Exploration of the history, theologies, and opportunities that define our global faith is a valuable experience for Unitarian Universalists to undertake. Congregations, groups of congregations, and individuals are invited to make use of a Faithful International Engagement Workshop as a tool for studying, planning, and developing ministries of international engagement.
The full workshop includes four sections:
- A sketch of the past, present and future of Unitarian, Universalist, and UU international engagement explored via video and discussion
- An exploration of the theological grounding of faithful international engagement.
- An overview of effective UU congregational international engagement ministries and available resources.
- Strategic planning for international engagement.
In a half-day or full-day setting, additional community building and worship elements can be added to the workshop. Or this workshop can be adapted to a multi-session model of 4-6 meetings. Please contact the International Resources Office to discuss the most effective adaptation of this faithful international engagement workshop for your congregation. A staff member from our office would be glad to visit your congregation to lead a workshop or consult with you about offering the workshop with your congregation's own leadership.
