Sharing our truths: the life stories of Foothills UU’s
Being known
Talking to one another in deeply authentic ways
The intergenerational piece feels really significant to meーwhether it is a part of the process itself (youth interviewing elders and vice versa), or if it is about the elders yearning for their stories to endure

Choose Your Own Small Group Adventure
Letting people choose how (and if) they want to move into deeper belonging
Choosing how to connect
One thing I like about this idea is that it presents a lot of choices at a particular moment in time ー a specific opportunity for people to sit back and evaluate the ways that they are currently engaging and to think about engaging in other ways.

Cooking Up Community
Bonding over food
Belonging, taking time with each other
I’m not totally clear on the idea, but I have thought for a long time that having more frequent opportunities to eat together would be good. Our Nashville church had weekly dinners (catered, $7 donation encouraged) with about 50 people in attendance. We went to that more religiously than we did to the Sunday services (small kids, didn’t have to cook!).

Story Holders
Being known
Being listened to without judgement or fear of wider exposure
I love that this idea keeps percolating up. I wonder with this example whether/how pieces of people’s stories might be shared out beyond the pair
