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.
More than 70 members and friends filled our downstairs hall on February 28th for an evening of music, laughter, performance, fellowship and celebration. (Photos.)
It seems to me that there are several ‘big issue’ conversations that need to happen here…within this beautiful community that makes up The Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough. Such conversations, at their best, would help us to make some decisions, to move forward with some needed changes, to create a better future, and probably most importantly, to connect more deeply with one another. They would help us to know and understand the breadth of ideas, opinions, and feelings that reside among us. Such conversations would help us to build the beloved community.
The Fellowship’s Environmental Working Group is hosting a Peterborough conversation on fossil fuel divestment after the service on Feb. 15, as part of the 350.org campaign’s worldwide Divestment Day.
