If I knew what I was doing

In my last post, I ended with these words:
What we need is a serious (but which I mean, non-anxious and constructive) discussion of what we ought to be doing. We need a responsible discussion which assumes that all of us are involved in an important discussion with partners and it matters what we conclude. We need a discussion in which people claim and own their leadership and act like leaders.
The response has been for readers and commentators to ask me where, and when, and the format for such a discussion to take place.  If I knew how to put things like that together, I would do it, instead of talking about it. (There's a line in a Keith Urban song that goes, "If I knew what I was doing, I'd be doing it right now." There's a reason why I blog.)

In short, there is no time like the present to have a real discussion about the real issues facing Unitarian Universalism; no where better than here, or where ever you are.

"If I knew how to put things like that together, I would do it, instead of talking about it."

I so relate to that statement.
