Leadership as Soulful Imagining and Community Healing
Saturday, August 13th from 1:00 – 3:00 PM
The pandemic has been especially hard for the leaders in our UU communities. Folks are burned out, church members are overwhelmed, and we really aren’t sure what is going to happen next. So what do we do? This program will allow you to explore the possible in your own leadership and the leadership needs of the community. There will be some time for self and community care before we get to the question of: what’s next? Rev. Sunshine will stay after 3:00 PM to meet with individual committees or groups who would like some support in their work (see note below).
All participants are asked to read and watch the following before this session:
- A Garden Story by Shannon Harper
- Garden Story Part 2: The LAP by Shannon Harper
- The Art of Gathering with Priya Parker
- Emergent Strategy for Linear Thinkers by Renee Ruchotzke (optional)
Leaders, we encourage in person participation but if that is not possible for you, please join us via Zoom.
UUCK Teams and Committees, if you would like to meet with Rev. Sunshine as a team, please email Jennifer May ([email protected]) with team name. She will reply with a time slot for the team after 3:00 PM on Saturday.
Sunday: UUCK Congregation (Members, Friends, and Newcomers)
After the Flood: A Workship for Our Times
Sunday, August 14 at 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
As we relearn how to be in community in a time of extended pandemic, the question becomes- what do we do next? This workship (cross between a worship and workshop) will provide time to consider how we choose to be in relationship and what it means to imagine the possible. A mixture of lament and joy built through presentation and play will allow us to do some deep and meaningful soul care for this community and ourselves. All attendees are encouraged (but not required) to read “A Garden Story” and “Garden Story Part 2: The LAP” by Shannon Harper before the workship. There will be a time of transition at 11am for those who need to leave. The full workship will end at 12pm.
Update: UUCK Members and Friends who were not able to participate, this workshop was recorded. If you wish to view the session, please contact MaryBeth at [email protected] for the podcast link.
