UU Churches often experience first-time visitors and returning old friends. On social media, people are looking for community and are being pointed to our congregations. Gone are the days when a liberals asked with puzzlement, "You're a Uni-What?"
We need to be ready, every Sunday. We need to be at our best, showing up on the Side of Love, and ready to meet people where they are. We need to encounter one another without assumptions and stereotypes clouding our interactions.
What You Can Do
- Print and share this 2-sided card with your greeters (both formal in informal) so they can practice open-ended questions.
- Add intercultural communication skills to your greeter training, such as:
- Signal that your congregation is welcoming by displaying a rainbow or "Progress Pride" flag, a Black Lives Matter sign, and/or other symbols of inclusion.
