One of the many things I like about our Unitarian Universalist models of MultiSite Ministries is that it opens my imagination of what possible in any congregation. MultiSite Ministries is simply defined as “one congregation in many locations.” Sometimes MultiSites come together when multiple congregations start sharing staff and other resources. Sometimes a cluster of congregations will start cooperating on a social justice issue and live into other ways of cooperating, and then before they know it they’ve become one people in many locations.
In this video (click on the picture), Rev. Jonipher Kupono Kwong of the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu explains how the clusters of UU communities in Hawaii have come together to grow deeper and broader in their faith.
Where do you see possibilities for your congregation’s collaboration and broader community impact in this story? Regardless of what your congregation’s path might be, we hope that sparks of what we’re learning about MultiSite Ministries can live in your congregation’s imagination of possibilities.
