Sunday Service - How to be Wrong: Overcoming Perfectionism in Service of Justice
BAUUC Sanctuary

We love to be warriors for justice when we know we’re in the right, but what happens when, despite our best intentions, we find out we ourselves have caused harm? Perfectionism can block us from connecting with others and acting compassionately. This week, J will discuss how perfectionism can show up for us as UUs, and ways we can overcome it in order to better serve our world.

Wednesday Conversations

Calling all futurists.  Let’s get together to figure out what we want to do going forward using our futures tools.  It will likely involve understanding or creating our vision using a method like appreciative inquiry; understanding what tools we have; environmental scanning to understand the trends in place, etc.  This will be a joint brainstorming and work effort and should be a lot of fun.  Whether you think you know some futures or none, it will be a hands-on learning experience so don’t worry. This conversation will be led by our Futurist expert Terry Grim. Please join us on Wednesday, Sep 29th at 7:00pm
