Event Description

Reverend Nate’s service last week was about the congregation’s past. Today’s service is about his hopes for the future of the First Unitarian Church. In the last seven years he has come to learn that the congregation, and even our society, does not need another hero. The hero-complex distorts our expectations and misrepresents our reality. We do not need someone with special powers to do extraordinary tricks. What our congregation, and our world, needs are highly effective teams who can efficiently and continuously accomplish ordinary tasks. We need people who are willing to put in the hard work of being healthy partners in the spirit of shared ministry. No one will save us. The responsibility rests with us all.
