WEBINAR: The Almost Church Revitalized next TUESDAY


Friends,  next Tuesday I am hosting a conversation with Michael Durall, parish consultant and author of the Almost Church books.

I spoke with Michael recently and we outlined the following topics for the webinar.

  • First, what it means to be a UU in this place and time, the meaning of membership, and why the Membership Committee is one of the most significant ministries in the church.
  • Second, issues of outreach, mission, and social justice beyond your own four walls — the keys to a healthy congregation.
  • Third, the perennial need for strong and informed leadership, what Peter Drucker often refers to as “A foul-weather job.”

I hope you can join us!  Seats are limited, but a handful are still available.  For my previous webinars people have organized groups to gather round a computer and listen via speaker phone. I love the idea of groups joining in.  Full details and link to online registration are below.  — Peter
