Ministerial Search: Beyond Categorical Thinking Workshop

“Will the new minister hear me? Will my concerns and needs be met?  Will the minister understand what I’m living with? How will the community respond to our minister?’

In answering these questions, a picture of the “ideal minister” (categorized by age, gender identity, nationality, physical or cognitive ability, race, sexual orientation, etc.) comes to mind. With this picture in place, it can be easy to unintentionally exclude ministers who fall into certain categories. At times, as we get caught up in comparing candidates to our “picture,” we can even forget what it is we hoped for in a minister.

On the weekend of October 22–23, Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship 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. The Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Ministerial Search Committee invites all congregational leaders, members, and friends to participate in this workshop.

New Offering! "Reflect & Respond:" A Post-Service Discussion

Beginning Sunday, October 10, ERUUF’s Worship Associates will host an online gathering, “Reflect and Respond” at 12:15 pm.

This will be an opportunity for members and friends to gather each week to share thoughts about the morning’s sermon.   Worship Associates will be there to help organize the gathering, but we envision that the conversation will be generated by attendees’ participation. The discussion time is expected to last about 30 minutes., and the Zoom link will be available on the ERUUF website. All are welcome!
