Our Weekend on the Prairie

Last weekend the District Board, Program Council, and staff met for a retreat at Shalom Hill Farm, near Windom, MN. This time is one of sharing new ideas about ways to serve our UU congregations. The Board discussed the results from the district-wide evaluation we conducted last spring and set priorities. The Program Council and staff talked about ways to work on those priorities. In addition, the staff presented their goals for the year, and those were affirmed by the Board.

The setting is rural Minnesota, with rolling hills and a dome-like, wonderful sky. If it’s clear, the stars are fantastic in the night sky. This year we had bracing winds from the south and a few Monarch butterflies in the trees as they start wending their way south for the winter.

We came away with some plans in place and more work to do to flesh out new ways to serve our congregations.
