Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 5: How Are Decisions Made? Governance and Polity

In "The New UU," a Tapestry of Faith program

Consider your own history of participating in congregational governance. What roles have you held? How have you felt about your participation? How has your participation shaped your relationship with your congregation? With other members? Has it shaped or influenced your theological understanding? In what capacities have you been involved in controversial or complicated congregational decisions? What have you observed as the strengths of your congregation in democratic decision making? What challenges have you noted?

Write in your journal and/or share your responses with your co-facilitator(s).
