General Assembly, Vision for UUism

Community Conversations are structured group gatherings involving anywhere from a dozen to a hundred people. They are divided into 4 mandatory and 2 optional segments (modules). There are different versions of each module, so that communities can tailor them to meet their unique needs. (For example, there are small and large group segments, short and full-length interviews, and materials for adults and children.)

The following documents are in PDF format.
