JoUUrneying to Leadership
The Mountain Desert District offers the finest means to Affirm, Deepen, Nurture, and Build effective leadership within your congregation – the Russell Lockwood Leadership School! One inspiring week communing with fellow adult UUs of all ages from around the west exploring the history, values, policies, inspirations and complexities of the Unitarian Universalist liberal religious tradition. One week engaging a wide scope of materials focused on nourishing whatís meaningful for an individual being a UU while equipping an individual with skills to be a contributor to both the local and global communities.
The curriculum of RLLS evolves continuously as we present congregational leaders with the resources and perspectives to help them guide 21st century congregations. The faculty and staff strive to present a fully integrated curriculum each and every year. Leadership, history and theology will be woven into each presentation. We will use a case study model to help participants integrate new information and perspectives with authentic congregational situations. We will also include presentations and activities on how to build the Beloved Community with Deborah Holder and Alicia Forde as we explore the integration of justice with all aspects of congregational life. Each participant will receive a rich variety of resources to share with the boards and congregations.
We encourage all UUs on a journey to leadership to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
