Prairie Vision / Appreciative Inquiry
NEXT STEP: DREAM – FEBRUARY 24, 2019
Worship and Learning Hour all about DREAMS FOR PRAIRIE
Prairie UU Church embarked on a year-long Appreciative Inquiry process in September to establish a new vision and direction for Prairie. The process focuses on recognizing what is the best of Prairie and what more do we want to affirm those strengths. There are 5 steps in the Appreciative Inquiry Process:
- Topic Choice
We completed the Topic Choice phase end of November 2018. Our congregation chose 5 topic categories to focus on in the following phases:
Impactful Social Justice
Thriving and Engaged Community
Inspired Home of Our Own
In December 2018, we started on the DISCOVERY phase of the process. We have collected input from the congregation about each of the 5 Topic Choice categories.
The next step is the DREAM about Prairie’s future…what we see for ourselves; the kind of church we want to be. We will use the collected feedback and stories to help inspire our dreams. (Feb 24th 10am-12:30pm).
Once we complete our DREAM phase, all information and input will be collated and documented. The Vision Team will summarize and present the DESIGN to the Congregation for feedback. Once the Design is drafted, the entire process moves to DESTINY.
