Theological Diversity: Contention or Convergence?

Two Iowa ministers, the Rev. Brian Eslinger, a member of HUUmanists, and the Rev. Roger Butts, a member of the UU Christian Fellowship, dis­cuss areas of agreement, diver­gence, and conver­gence as they understand Unitarian Universalism. They celebrate their mu­tual respect and the move­ment that enables each to covenant with the other in ways transformative and renewing.

Web Templates for Congregations That Promote Growth

Congregations needing a Web site – or needing a better Web site – will enjoy seeing the results of a project to de­velop Web sites that pro­mote congre­gational growth. This pro­ject created a set of tem­plates to be used by various levels of congre­ga­tions to create or en­hance their Web sites. The tem­plates are avail­able for free or at minimal cost to congrega­tions and can be in­stalled with minimal tech­nical expertise. This project was partially fund­ed by the UU Funding Program and was spon­sored by the First Unita­rian Society Technology Task Force.

A Summit on Families

How do congregations reach out to families? How does the congregation account for dif­ferent family forms repre­sent­ed by families in the con­gre­gation? How does the sche­duling of activities of the con­gregation reflect the busy and often com­plex calendar of fa­milies? Come partici­pate in a panel discussion about the future of families within our faith that asks these ques­tions and many more.

Diversity’s Challenge: Conflict and Right Relations

It isn’t easy being diverse UUs! In this workshop we’ll learn about ways to build communities that truly appreciate differences, what’s often behind typical congregational conflicts, and how to work through some specific conflicts.  We’ll also remind ourselves to celebrate the spiritual and intellectual growth opportunities provided by our diversity. Presented by members of the Prairie Star District Conflict Engagement/ Right Relations Consulting Team: Sharon Blevins, Cheri Cody, Brian Eslinger, Dale Handeen, Nancy Heege and/or Phil Lund.
