On Friday, October 22, and Saturday, October 23, ERUUF will participate in the Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop offered by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) for congregations involved in the search for a new minister. ERUUF's Ministerial Search Committee invites all congregational leaders, members, and friends to participate in this workshop.

The Beyond Categorical Thinking program is designed to promote inclusive thinking and help prevent unfair discrimination in the search process for a new minister. This program includes a three-hour workshop with Rev. Keith Kron of the UUA. In the workshop, Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship members will:
  • Consider the hopes, expectations, and concerns they have for a new minister
  • Learn more about the ministerial search process, and
  • Explore how thinking categorically about people sometimes interferes with choosing the best candidate.
Join our Zoom session on Friday, October 22 from 7:00-8:30 pm and Saturday, October 23 from 10:00-11:30 am to participate in this UUA-sponsored workshop, led by Rev. Keith Kron (Register below). Rev. Kron will also be our speaker during the service on October 24.

The selection of a minister is important. This workshop is another opportunity for everyone in our congregation to be a part of that process. This experience will provide guidance for the search committee in our work. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Diane Blount or Lisa Jones at
