These are short, spoken essays are designed to engage, inspire, uplift, enlighten, rejuvenate and motivate.
Drive Time Essays, available here in audio (MP3) and web reading formats, were originally prepared for Compact Discs.
Be sure to check out the Bonus Tracks: These web-only tracks are available in downloadable MP3 format.
Unitarian Universalists (UUs) from all walks of life; ministers, lay leaders, Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) staff members—were invited to share bits of wisdom about how to lead vital, healthy UU congregations. The result is this Disc with 21 essays, each about three minutes long, each addressing some aspect of congregational leadership.
This Disc, the second in our series, contains audio essays written by Don Skinner, the editor of InterConnections; the much respected newsletter for leaders of Unitarian Universalist congregations. These 19 essays are between 2 and 6 minutes long.
Drive Time #3 focuses on smaller congregations—those that have fewer than 150 members—and many that have fewer than 50 or 75. There are more than 600 small congregations within our Association. And much of the wisdom included will be equally helpful to mid-size and larger congregations.
The CDs for all three Drive Time Essays are available through your District Office.
