What does it mean to be ‘People of Invitation?’

One way that we can be ‘people of invitation’ is to invite that ‘sound of the genuine’ in us to bubble up … to be seen and known. We can be a place where genuine selves gather, a place where you can bring your own undivided and genuine self, a place where we can all learn to better hear those genuine selves. We can be a place that is both safe enough to trust and bold enough to allow genuine expression.

Big Circle Conversations – They’re coming!

Will you take part? Will you participate in the co-creation of our future?
Why do I think we need to gather in these intentional conversations? Three reasons, really.
The first is the reality that the place of religion in society is quickly shifting.
Second, the future is already upon us here at the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough.
Third, YOU, the community, are the only ones who have the answers.
