A crucial correction to My Last Post on UU Leadership

I said '

What if we went another way:  What if we gathered the wisest, most dedicated and inspirational leaders of Unitarian Universalism and asked them to articulate our mission and vision and to work with our leaders to build personal commitment for that.  Instead of turning toward expertise, we turn to inspiration as the way forward.'

What I should have said:

What if we went another way:  What if we gathered our most dedicated, inspirational and YOUNGER leaders and asked them to articulate our mission and vision for the UUism they want to spend their lives building and asked our present leaders to build personal commitment for that.  Instead of turning toward wisdom and experience, we turned to the future and let ourselves be inspired by it.

Amen!

Although with the programming cuts and the lack of appreciation for a larger experience of Unitarian Universalism, I wonder what the younger voices would say...
