The UU Florida SE Cluster
Annual Meeting 2018
Spectrum of Member

From Curious Individual
to Integrated Leader


Join Lori Emison Clair as we consider together what a faith tradition might look like when it moves beyond the traditional goal of increasing membership to visioning together what a full Spectrum of Engagement in our UU Faith might look like.

We will explore ways to foster a culture of connection including the importance of changing our mindset to understand greeting as a spiritual practice and membership as a ministry and how that shifts the culture of the congregation towards belonging and deeper engagement.

We will share examples and resources that support creating a culture of belonging and building a community of engagement. And finally, we will touch upon some ways to consider engagement tracking and retention. It will be a morning full of possibilities with information available to easily implement programming in your home congregations.


Lori Emison Clair was Director of Congregational Life at the First Unitarian Church in Des

Professionals (UUAMP)
