Core Team for Spokane Alliance
UUCS and Spokane Alliance
In 2005, the UUCS joined the Spokane Alliance, a non-partisan and non-profit alliance of congregations, unions, school and community groups in Spokane County dedicated to making Spokane a better place for all. Using consensus, we work toward these three main goals:
- Strengthen each member organization.
- Develop local leadership
- Act in the public arena for the common good
Mission and Culture
The “UUCS Core” team’s mission is to promote social justice and develop community leaders; to inform congregants about public meetings, hearings and other gatherings that promote a stronger, more just community, while encouraging a relational culture within our congregation by supporting one-on-one relational meetings between congregants.
The relational meeting, a face-to-face, one-to-one encounter,
-explores the possibility of a public relationship with another person.
-is the glue that brings people together and allows them to embrace the tension of living between the world-as-it-is and the world-as-it-should-be, and
-is a forum in which we meet each other to create connection.
We encourage relational meetings because we are a people defined by what we do.
