Faith In Action: UU Partners in Action, Workshop 6: Hope, Compassion and Strength

In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Information about the Unitarian Universalist partner church program and (optional) your congregation's partner church

Preparation for Activity

  • Find out if your congregation is a Unitarian Universalist partner church. Invite a congregational leader to visit and talk with the group about the partnership. Ask your guest to prepare to answer these questions: Where is the partner church? What is the history of the partnership? What have the congregations done together? If our congregation gives service to the partner church, how do we make sure we are honoring our partner church's real needs and perspectives on how to solve their own problems? If anyone in the Gather the Spirit group has experience with your congregation's partner church, invite them to speak to the group, also.
  • If your congregation does not have a partner church, find out about the UU partner church program. Bring information to share with the group.

Description of Activity

If your congregation has a partner church, a guest involved in the partnership meets with the group. If anyone in the group has participated in partnership activities, they share their experiences.

If your congregation does not have a partner church, share information about the UU Partner Church Council and its programs. You might talk about why your congregation is not a partner church, and help the group brainstorm other partnerships with which the group or the wider congregation might engage.
