This coming Tuesday, April 12th
, is our next URW meeting. Upper House
will be hosting us. Breakfast and conversation at 9:00
and the meeting will begin at 9:30
We are happy to announce this that our speaker this month is Corrie Norman, professor of religious studies. Corrie will talk about the complimentary nature of her work (UW’s religious studies program) and ours. Corrie’s husband is an Episcopal priest (Jonathan Grieser, Grace Church), and so she has a heart for students that bends from her context to ours and has a healthy understanding of the distinctions between the two.
We will also be asking for nominations for next year’s Leadership team. If you are interested in a position next year, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our March meeting is coming up next Tuesday, March 8th, hosted by Hillel at 611 Langdon St.
The topic of our conversation?
- How do we as religious leaders measure, assess and evaluate our ministry efforts?
- What impact are we hoping to have?
- How would we know and how can we convey that impact?
- What do we measure? How do we measure what we do? Should we?
Come prepared to think, to share, to listen and to learn with and from one another!
Looking forward to our December meeting next Tuesday the 8th, the last one of 2015! We’re gathering at St. Paul’s (723 State St) at 9am to discuss as a group the celebrations as well as the challenges our ministries encountered this semester. Hope you join us for the large group discussion as well as time to engage in small group conversation.
We are all looking forward to November’s meeting tomorrow! Jeff Novak, head of UW’s housing department, will present on the reality of campus living and how we can best meet the needs of students. Thanks to our friends at St. Francis House for hosting us!
