Collages from Appreciative Inquiry on Unitarian Universalism: Making a Meaningful, Relevant Difference

The purpose of this well-attended workshop was to inform the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board as it writes "ends" statements to set vision and direction for the future. In addition, it served as valuable training in Appreciative Inquiry for congregational leaders.

What do we care about, as a group? What factors made our peak experiences possible? And what possibilities do our stories and wishes open up for Unitarian Universalism to make a difference in the future?

We summarized these wishes in bold, provocative statements, stated as if it is happening now, and also in the visual shorthand of collages that open up our three wishes to people who were not with us at this productive General Assembly workshop.
