Beyond Categorical Thinking in Finding a Second Minister

Vestry
11:30am - 3pm
December 8, 2019


Add to Calendar 12/08/19 11:30am 12/08/19 3pm America/New York City Beyond Categorical Thinking in Finding a Second Minister

We are looking for second minister to assist and enrich the life and work of First Parish. The Unitarian Universalist Association recommends that the program, “Beyond Categorical Thinking,” be part of every minister search process. It’s about not overlooking or even letting biases keep us from knowing that a particular minister would be the best match for us.

Other congregations have assumed that their ideal minister looks a certain way, and often ministers who are not white or male or heterosexual or able-bodied or of a particular age or class are discounted and seen as “less than” in some ways.

Credentialed ministers in our faith who are People of Color, LGBTQ+, alternately-abled, young, old, working class, etc. still face discrimination as part of the ministerial search process.

Rev. Jane Dwinell, a Beyond Categorical Thinking (BCT) trainer will offer the sermon on Sunday, December 8th and lead a workshop following worship.

 

Please RSVP by December 2nd
