The Board of Directors wants to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who participated in the Listening Circle on July 30th. We have been focusing on the concept that UCOP is our Spiritual Home, and the attendance at the Listening Circle was a powerful testimony to how important this spiritual home is to all of us. It was a time of deep listening and gave us each the opportunity to not only be heard, but to listen to others in our community. We shared our joys and our concerns, and there were unexpected moments of healing as apologies were offered and, perhaps, forgiveness tapped into. The Board members listened, but
did not respond during the meeting. We have taken all that was said to heart and we are in the process of discerning next steps which may emerge from all that was shared. As action steps become more clear, we will bring opportunities for everyone to become involved.
A beginning place for each of us is to examine how our Core Values of Love, Inclusiveness, Spirit-Led, Joy and Abundance are alive and well within each of us, and how we are expressing each of those values into the world. We invite each congregant in our church home to do the same. We promise to provide updates as we move forward. We are in this together, and together we are making UCOP a strong spiritual home!
