Triumphs and Turmoil: a community look-back at UCV’s ministerial history 

Part 2: Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 6:30 pm – Fireside room and on Zoom. We encourage participants to pre-register to help our planning and to receive advance materials whether attending in person or on Zoom.

This January 18th session is in follow-up to the gathering on November 16, 2022, which was first of three planned discussions on UCV’s history of ministry. This series is an initiative of the Ministerial Transition Team (MTT) facilitated by members of the Healthy Relations Team.

We will continue to review the timeline of ministry at UCV. The first meeting covered the ministry of the late Rev. Dr. Phillip Hewett and the ministry of Rev. John Quirk. In this Part 2 we will summarize our discussions thus far, including reference to archival material, address questions that may arise, and proceed further in the timeline. As in Session 1, the goal is to elicit brief stories, celebrate particular strengths, clarify differing viewpoints, and where possible address lingering griefs or conflicts about past decisions and actions/inactions related to ministry. We will discuss how problematic issues were addressed, and what processes we have or should have in place now. We’ll reflect on  how the strengths of the ministries along with the challenges and their resolutions have shaped us.

All welcome! Once again, please pre-register here. 

For those not able to join in person, we are also offering a zoom option using this link:
