MONTHLY BOARD MEETING
I recently had the privilege of speaking at the UU Fellowship of Kerrville and I am happy to say that several of our members here at the church will be speaking there in the near future. I have also been very happy to see that some of the members of the Fellowship have been attending events that are presented by the church. We are all UU’s and although there have been some issues between the members of the two congregations in the past it is nice to know that we can in some ways get along.
One of the things that I mentioned at the Fellowship is “staying at the table”. The Fellowship just had some issues that caused people to leave the congregation rather than staying at the table and working through the issues. This is a problem not only at our Fellowship in Kerrville but in congregations around the country. Staying at the table is hard work, feelings get hurt, people do not feel as if they are being heard and rather than work through issues they just walk away.
Here at our congregation we are working toward being a cohesive group, we may have a few issues to still work out but we have opened up channels for everyone to be heard. By opening up all of our meetings, including the Board meeting, so that everyone may attend and be heard we are looking forward to hearing your ideas. Hopefully, if you have a problem or an issue that you would like addressed you will come to the meeting that covers that topic. If you do not let your voice be heard we will never know if there is a problem.
Currently we have an opening on our Board for a Vice President, what better way to have your voice heard than becoming a part of the solution? Yes, this job does come with some guidelines, some of what our Board does is online communication so that everyone will be up to speed prior to the meeting so we have more time to discuss more issues and there are a few other guidelines. I will not say that you just show up for a meeting and you are done, all of our committees are very hard working and you can ask any Board member, it does take work. The rewards are great, you get to work with a great bunch of people and you help to make decisions that guide our congregation forward.
If you feel that you would like your voice to be heard please feel free to contact Steve Galland who is currently on the hunt for a new VP for our congregation.
We, as a congregation, cannot address your issues if we don’t know what they are so please be involved in the solutions rather than the problems.
