“Building a Culture of Inclusion” Workshop at Pacific Unitarian this Sunday

UUs across the country are being called to action and the UU Principles will guide us.  To-date, 333 UU congregations and related UU groups have adopted the 8th Principle.  Adoption is an important step, but once adopted, how do we incorporate  the 8th Principle with the others in a way that transforms our church community and the future of our ministries?  What are learning collectively now about how to expand our vision and our practices to fulfill the promises of UUism and to “Widen the Circle”?  

This workshop addresses strategic steps to multicultural change. Dr. Paula Cole Jones will guide us through steps we can take to embrace the spiritual, cultural, and structural aspects of moving more fully into our vision of the Beloved Community through the lens of 8th Principle work. 

Dr. Paula Cole Jones is a life-long Unitarian Universalist and a Management Consultant with over twenty years of experience in designing and facilitating workshops and dialogues for leaders and organizations.  She is an innovator of institutional change.  In 1999, Paula founded ADORE, A Dialogue on Race & Ethnicity.  Her work includes being a leader in advancing the 8th Principle and the Community of Communities as practices of the Beloved Community.  Paula is the author of a UU World Magazine cover story, Reconciliation as a Spiritual Discipline.  She is also the editor of a Skinner House book, Encounters: Poems about Race, Ethnicity and Identity and a contributing author to three Skinner House books, including the UUA Common Read, Justice on Earth.  Recently, her home congregation established an annual award in her name, The Paula Cole Jones Transformation Award, and honored her as the inaugural recipient.  In May, Paula was recognized with an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School.
