Gathering 3 - May 2022 Theme: Reactivity to Resilience: Inner Work in Congregations

Participants explored how the inner work of shifting our orientation from reactivity to activation could initiate or support culture change in congregations.

Gathering 2 - March 2022 Theme: Responding to Racism through the Practices of Spiritual Leadership

Participants learned of the Follen Responds to Racism team's experience of engaging the practices of Spiritual Leadership in their anti-racism work. We considered how the practices interrupt racism/white supremacy culture and how they can help shift culture within or beyond our congregations.

Gathering 1 - January 2022 Theme: Why culture change? Why practices of Spiritual Leadership? Why a community of practice?

In this inaugural gathering we explored our call to culture change as UUs and how we see practices of Spiritual Leadership enabling such change. We established our initial expectations for the community of practice and shared visions for desired culture changes toward which you want to apply practices of Spiritual Leadership.
