Serving on the search committee is surprisingly rewarding. Reading minister’s records,
interviewing and sharing social time with them, visiting other UU congregations to hear
them preach, talking with their referents – it all brings a new appreciation of the ways of
being a UU. Please consider nominating yourself or another member for the search
committee. Without a doubt the search is a huge commitment, but like other huge
commitments, it comes with real gifts. Search committee members not only learn much
about the congregation and the denomination, they also deepen relationships throughout
the congregation and with each other, and they hold the hopes of the congregation.
Serving is hard work but extremely meaningful – dare we say – deeply spiritual work.
Feel free to talk with a search committee member to learn more about the task. If you
would like to nominate yourself or another (with their knowledge), use the nomination
form here or that you will find available at upcoming Sunday services. This may be
the most valuable service you will ever offer the society.
