Here are the workshops about stewardship at GA this year:
- "Risking Generosity: Stewardship in These Times," Thursday, June 21, 1:30pm - 2:30pm
Presented by Rev. Vail Weller and Cheri Taylor, UUA Stewardship & Development
This is no time for a casual commitment to our faith. Money empowers your congregation to live its values. This workshop will encourage and enable you to unlock that power. As we risk generosity, we can meet the challenges of our time.
- "Stewardship, Justice, and White Supremacy," Thursday, June 21, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Presented by Rev. Jacqueline Brett, Jessica Cloud, Mark Ewert, and Elizabeth Terry
We have learned that economic oppression and white supremacy are linked. We also understand that strong congregational finances give us resources to create beloved communities where we can work to dismantle white supremacy. Join us to discuss creating systems of stewardship that reflect our values around power and accountability.
- "Calling Future Ancestors - Shaping Our Legacy Today," Saturday, June 23, 1:30pm - 2:30pm
Presented by Rev. Laura Randall and Mark Ewert, Wake Now Our Vision Collaborative Campaign, UUA Stewardship & Development, Stewardship For Us
How are our long range plans informed by our values, beliefs, and loves? How do we understand ourselves as future ancestors of our faith? Our legacies are what we plan for and do now. Concrete resources will be provided, yet let’s consider these deeper topics together in this participatory workshop.
