Letting Go

Welcoming the Nones 

Spiritual Leader: Rev. Sarah Schurr  Lay Leader: Hayden Nevill

When experts look at the changing demographics of the US and of potential UUs, the fastest growing group is not those who are leaving another faith, but those who have no relationship with organized religion at all. We call them the “nones”.   How can we best serve this growing demographic? How can they help us build a better world? Rev. Sarah will share what she has learned about this trend and the future of our movement.
