Beyond Categorical Thinking Workshop
Date(s) - 10/02/2016
11:30 am - 2:30 pm
The Harvard UU Church will participate in the Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop led by Jory Agate. The BCT workshop is offered by the Unitarian Universalist Association for congregations involved in the search for a new minister. The Ministerial Search Committee invites all congregational leaders, members, and friends to participate in this workshop.
Beyond Categorical Thinking is a program designed to promote inclusive thinking and help prevent unfair discrimination in the search process for a new minister. This program includes a Sunday morning service with BCT workshop facilitators followed by a three hour workshop.
In the workshop, HUUC members will:
- Consider the hopes, expectations, and concerns they have for a new minister,
- Learn more about the ministerial search process, and
- Explore how thinking categorical about peoples sometimes interferes with choosing the best candidate.
The Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop is another opportunity for everyone in our congregation to be a part of the selection of a new minister. This experience will provide guidance for the search committee in our work. Please join us on October 1st at 10am to the church to participate in this important workshop!
