JANUARY

Our Committee of Shared Ministry (COSM) had a busy Fall.  For 2020 we wanted to take the congregation’s temperature simply asking: “How are we doing?”.  The pandemic, of course, changed everything.  Instead of having an interactive off-site, we conducted phone interviews and a survey.  We are happy to report that our 33 conversations were dynamic, insightful and gratifying.  In general, congregants are content and hopeful. Although missing the Meetinghouse, the transition to Zoom has opened many possibilities.  Folks look to continue to build upon these new resources creatively.  Another positive was Reverend Kimberly with the breadth of her contributions.   We heard about the importance of our community and the difference it makes in congregants’ lives.  Plus, our small congregations’ efforts to be an active voice in the greater community is rewarding.  People come to the UUCSF for different reasons, yet they get the nourishment they need.

There are always opportunities to improve and there were many suggestions of how we could be a better, fuller congregation in the years ahead.  The COSM prepared a report communicated to the Council, highlighting recommendations across the three areas that were stressed in our conversations: 1) Participation and Connection, 2) Spiritual and Intellectual Engagement and 3) Governance.   The COSM will continue to encourage our leadership to incorporate these thoughts into their conversations.

A Big Thank You to everyone who participated in the conversation and showed so much commitment and affection for our congregation.

Committee of Shared Ministry: Martha Potter, Ken Dorph, David Holstein
