Wendy Williams, Senior Minister
At Jefferson Unitarian Church, we are Making Room! Our Board cast a bold course of action last fall when it said, by May 1, 2018 we will have a viable plan to free JUC from the limits of our campus in order to live more fully into our mission.
It will take Board and Staff leadership, as well as congregational participation to determine the right plan for our church. Accordingly, we built this website to make it as easy as possible for leadership to share information and ask questions of our members. It will be regularly updated so that everyone has access to the same information and the process will be transparent.
Making Room is about our mission, as well as the call to live into the purpose of Unitarian Universalist congregations to be a spiritual center while maintaining a civic circumference.
JUC has always taken seriously Peter Morales’s optimism that we could be the religion for our time. To do so, however, we invited to wrestle deeply with who it is we want to be in this lonely fear-filled time. Clearly, our message which places human dignity and our foundational interdependence with all of life is increasingly relevant. So, we must ask ourselves: How can our church Make Room to Welcome All? How can we Make Room to Grow Our Ministries? How can we Make Room to Engage our Community?
With all of our voices, we will not only develop a viable plan, but we will create a brave and bold legacy that will serve JUC now and for generations to come.
