The work of spiritual community is complicated in the 21st century. From busy schedules to the ever pressing tension brought on by systemic injustice, the need for faithful leadership that is grounded and resilient is imperative. This is all the more true for leaders within our communities and congregations who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPoC). All too aware of this need, Congregational Life is excited to explore and co-create a network with congregational leaders that support them in this time in emergent ways through Taproot: A National BIPOC Space. The organizing pillars of this collective is:
- Rest & Renewal
- Analysis Building
- Leadership Development
BIPoC Leaders rooted in the Unitarian Universalist congregations are invited to take part in this monthly, virtual gathering as we explore these pillars in creating means by which to ground ourselves in resilient communities of care.
Dates: Starting on the Second Thursday of the month starting February 10, 2022. Remaining Dates for winter/spring 2022: March 10, April 14, and May 12.
Time: 8 PM EST/ 7 PM CST/ 6 PM MT/ 5 PM PST
This space is explicitly for people identifying as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPoC).
