Affirming justice, equity and compassion in all our relations
Reverend Nate was on the planning team for Gathered Here, a joint initiative of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees and the UUA Administration. It was an invitation to all Unitarian Universalists (UUs) to discover our common aspirations and unleash the power of our faith through one-on-one, small group, and larger group conversations.
Based on Appreciative Inquiry, a process that engages large numbers of stakeholders to identify what’s working well in organizations, Gathered Here encouraged UUs across the continent to participate in structured interviews with one another. Participants shared their experiences in congregations or communities, meaningful moments, times of growth and positive developments, and reflected on how those positive experiences were relevant to our larger faith and how they might be applied to our collective future.
