From the Ground Up: The Power of Our PSWD Communities

Our UU Church (UUCLB) is hosting the PSW District Assembly.

When: April 26-28, 2019

What’s it about: The congregation is the foundation of our Unitarian Universalist faith. Everything we do as an expression of our faith is grounded in the local communities from which we all take comfort and strength. Some of our greatest joys sprout from the spiritual communities and the congregations of the Pacific Southwest District – both big and small. How does this theme apply to your congregation or your life?

The keynote speaker is Donald Milton III and his questions for UUC communities are:
  • Are you engaging your congregants on the deepest and most meaningful levels possible?
  • Are you impacting their lives through your worship services to the point that they want to go out into the highways and byways to spread compassion, grace and radical hospitality?
  • Are you ready to “upcycle” your community’s worship?

Donald Milton III is the director of music at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta, the largest UU congregation in the Southeast. Together we will explore new ways of approaching hymns, music, readings, rituals and sermons to make them more meaningful, impactful and fully engaging. Milton runs one of the most eclectic and exceptional music programs in the UU movement. He wrote a chapter on upcycling church music for the recently released book, “Upcycle Your Congregation: Creative Ideas for Transforming Faith Communities.”

Early bird registration ends on 31 March.
