As you prepare for the workshop, consider how Unitarian Universalists sometimes "hide our light under a bushel." In what ways do individuals, congregations, and our association keep Unitarian Universalism "quiet?" Why might this be? What fears might be associated with living our faith more publicly, more "out loud?"
You may wish to ask participants to engage in this same spiritual practice so that they, too, arrive at the workshop centered and ready to engage with the material and the group.
