Beyond Categorical Thinking

On February 23, UUA Director of Transitions Rev. Keith Kron led the Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop at UUCA, to help our congregation examine our assumptions and biases and open our minds to new possibilities. Rev. Keith asked participants to consider their concerns or think about potential benefits of calling a minister with various characteristics. Read the worksheet here. Participants also discussed case studies and how they might handle them. Click to read the Ministerial Search Committee report about the Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop.

The following day, Rev. Keith preached at both services on the same theme, with a sermon called, “Don’t Think of a Minister.” Click to read Rev. Keith’s sermon Don’t Think of a Minister and readings from worship services on February 24.
