I think I'll dress up all in black, with a hat and a veil and gloves and everything, and just sit there and smoke and cry.

Just to make it a little bit tragic and glamorous, you know.

I found particularly interesting and worthy the report from congregational services and the support noted for the "multi-site" ventures in California and New Mexico. Good luck to those with those. Trying to remember who it is, though, of the church planting authors of late that recommends thinking and going "poly-site" instead of multi-site in order to further decentralize and be more responsive to the niche cultures reached. But glad to see these noted and supported. Here we are still planning to go multi-or-poly-site but haven't yet, focusing this year instead on our transformation from attraction to incarnation church plant. In fact looking over the report on growth activities I wish there was more support and attention and resources placed on things of a more experimental nature such as the multi-site approach and more incarnational ventures rather than the big medias approach, but I know you gotta play it safe sometime on an associational level. I also liked what I was reading about the Phil/Wilmington activities continuing, especially about the use of "under the radar" worship for leaders, and the public or on the radar events geared more to a community service and enrichment than pushing an overt religious message. Hope they will let them grow organically and not be a rush for "quantifiable results."

Also noted, for some reason it stood out, in the MFC report of fellowship admittees the 2-out-of-20 number this time of men to women appearing before them. Wonder what the current latest percentage of men is who are in candidate status?

I am hopeful because the UUA seems oriented to providing resources and leadership training for emerging groups (using the ICUU channel, not stated as such but this is my understanding of how it will be done), and also about a commitment to make the voice of the U+U traditions be visible and hopefully audible as well in the larger world. We'll see, but the prospects are promising.
