How to Build a Strong Congregational Justice Team

MOSES is offering an interactive, 2-part leadership opportunity for member congregations and others who are interested in MOSES. The training will be led by WISDOM state Director David Liners.

Saturday, March 23, 2013 
9:00 am – Noon
First Unitarian Society
900 University Bay Drive, Madison
Atrium Auditorium

Congregations are encouraged to bring a group of members interested in building a strong core team within their congregation.
The morning will include:

One-on-One Training
Individual one-on-one conversations are vital to finding out what issues directly concern congregation and community members and make the work of justice more central to the life of the church and community. A one-on-one listening campaign will strengthen the bonds of community in the congregation, and will build a stronger foundation for our justice work through MOSES. We will practice simple skills, disciplines and attitudes that allow the listener to hear and honor the stories, passions, and experiences in a person’s life, and provide a basis for future dialogue and collaboration.

Core Team Training
Learn how to build and/or strengthen a core group of leaders in your congregation to respond to the justice issues that are important to your congregation and the larger community. This portion of the training will provide ideas, processes and procedures needed to build strong, effective
teams that people want to join!

For more information or to RSVP, contact: Lisa Munro at
If you plan to attend an RSVP is appreciated, but not required.
