The Search Committee was thrilled by the turnout for the Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop on Sunday! 36 UUCB members and friends were in attendance as Eddy Carroll, of the First Unitarian Society of Denver, facilitated.
BCT was a fantastic learning opportunity that challenged us to examine our own biases and the ways they might affect the search process — especially when it comes to ministerial candidates of color, those who identify as GLBTQIA, or those with physical or mental disabilities. Thanks to this experience, the Search Committee is confident that we are prepared to consider our applicants as complete, complex people and evaluate them based on their ministry skills rather than our own assumptions.
Thank you to everyone who participated, and especially to Eddy for making it possible!
