Part of The New UU

Activity time: 15 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • The original Parking Lot list from Workshop 1, including any questions that have been added during subsequent workshops

Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

Introduce the activity with these or similar words:

When we began this series of workshops, we asked what questions you had about the congregation and Unitarian Universalism, and we listed them. We have added to the list during the workshops. We have also addressed many of the questions. Now, we will review them to be sure they have been answered.

Read each question. If you believe it has been answered, ask participants to confirm that and check it off on the newsprint. If a question has not been answered, do so briefly. If necessary, refer participants to another resource, either within the congregation or beyond it. After all listed questions have been reviewed, ask if there are any final questions.
