Beyond Categorical Thinking, a part of the search process for our congregation. Ministers in our faith who are people of color, bisexual, gay, lesbian, female, transgender, differently-abled, young, old, ethnically different, or of a different class—all of these credentialed ministers still face discrimination as part of the ministerial search process. In our efforts to find the best match, our congregation will host a Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 9:00 to 1:00.
And…lunch will be served. Need childcare? Contact Melinda Einander.
The Rev. Keith Kron, Transitions Director for the UUA, will facilitate a 3-hour conversation on Saturday, where we will have a chance to examine how we can avoid letting prejudice become a part of our search process.
This is yet another way for us to put our faith into lived experience and improve the odds that regardless of identity, we will find the minister who is the best match for us and will serve us well This opportunity allows the entire congregation fuller participation in the search process. It will allow us to explore our hopes and concerns for a new minister, learn more about the search process, and see how our own history (both personal and congregational) might interfere with our efforts in this search. So come on Saturday, October 7, 2017 to participate in this service provided by the UUA, whom our congregations have asked for help in this process.
