Diverse Beliefs, One Fellowship

    The Reverend's Reflections - January 2017

    As the New Year arrives, my ministry with UUFCO turns towards conclusion. In the remaining months, my task is to prepare you for a relationship with a new minister – a task I’ve been working on throughout, in fact. A newer dialogue is arising about the congregation’s part in a partnering with a minister: how the congregation relates with a minister, not only how the minister relates with the congregation. This is rich territory for UUFCO in the midst of seeking a new partnership.

    UUFCO has had professional ministry since 2004, starting at a quarter time and growing to fulltime in less than ten years. The quick growth of the congregation is a source of pride and amazement. I’ve witnessed a huge expansion in awareness of our connections to the denominational community and awareness that we are part of a liberal faith tradition. Yet, for a fellowship to develop a full understanding of ministry, and hit its stride as an experienced partner in shared ministry, would be exceptional in such a short time.  Especially so for a fellowship lay-led for 45 years.
