A congregation, as a living system, exists in a changing environment and must continue to evolve in order to thrive and even survive. Rev. Sarah Schurr will share some of the evolutionary theories about congregations and how UU groups can be most vibrant in our changing religious landscape.
Rev. Sarah Schurr is our primary contact with the Pacific Western Region of the UUA. As part of her portfolio, she is the specialist in small congregations and was the first minister for a number of small congregations before joining the UUA staff. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
