You’re Invited to be a Part of Spirit Map

You’re Invited to be a Part of Spirit Map

Dear UUCC family,
We’re a few months into the congregational year that started in July, and so far, I’m regularly amazed by how much I still don’t know about our congregation.  Every week I learn something new, about a congregant, or a staff member, or a fellow board member, or a great UUCC program.  There’s so much more to our congregational story than any one person can describe, and yet it feels important to capture as much as we can to guide the Board of Trustees in its work of eliciting the congregation’s priorities to define our path into the future.  Therefore, we’re asking each of you, beginning Sunday, October 14 until Tuesday October 30, to participate in a survey that will identify our spiritual assets and opportunities as a congregation.
Nearly 1600 people have completed Spirit Map’s validated inventory, either on their own or through their congregation.  It consists of 44 statements about spiritual well-being, and asks you to reflect on how true each statement is OF you, and how important each statement is TO you.  It will help us articulate what matters to us as a congregation, and also where we have opportunities to grow and deepen our spiritual lives together.    It may also help you understand your own spiritual values in a new or different way.  We’ve  added a brief section specific to UUCC’s eight Ends and the extent to which we achieve them.  You can try a sample survey here.  And if you’re interested in learning more about the history of the Spirit Map, you can click here.  Finally, if you want to know more about Unity Consulting, the group that developed Spirit Map, you can check out their website here.
THE SPIRIT MAP WILL ONLY BE MEANINGFUL IF YOU TAKE THE SURVEY.  We need EVERYONE who cares even a little bit about UUCC’s way of being in the world to take the survey.  I know it’s long, and will take 15-30 minutes to complete, start to finish.  I know that’s a lot to ask in your busy lives.  AND I know that we won’t be able to interpret the data if we don’t have a reasonably representative sample of our 400+ members and friends.  We’ll have paper copies and computer stations available on Sundays during the survey period if you don’t have access to a computer at home, and Board members will be available to answer questions.
We’re counting on you to shape our future.  Remember, “all of us need all of us to make it.”  Will you be a part of making UUCC even better?
In community,
Jen Hayashi and the UUCC Board of Trustees
