So that we will have a dynamic Congregational Assembly, promoting our life and mission, we will:

  • Welcome the Spirit and one another into our contemplative space, open to nurturing our relationships and to engaging with questions that set us on realistic, nimble paths to possible action.
  • Pace the rhythm of our time together in ways that honor the expressed desire to go deeper, to be flexible, and to appreciate the wisdom, fidelity, and diversity among us.
  • Bridge the work of Assembly 2023 to the work of Assembly 2024 and exchange our wisdom about the implications for the election of our new leaders in 2025.
