The consultant worked so hard for us here at First UU and the momentum he created is going to carry us through to our goal. One among the many things I appreciate about his work is how curious he was about Unitarian Universalism and the culture of this denomination as compared to other Christian denominations. He came to worship with us. He allowed us to edit his materials to take out what might “sting” our folks, and his self-deprecating humor put everyone at ease. The consultant led while allowing us to feel we were in charge. He trained and guided our leaders and they are confident that they can do what needs to be done. We’ve already raised more money than we could have without him, and we’ve still got half our visits still to go! The consultant’s presence was a great addition to the church’s atmosphere. We miss him!
