Held By A Vision
Rev. David Pyle
Every congregation has a vision of themselves and the world they wish to build. A congregation could not exist without one. For many congregations, however, that vision exists in the implicit assumptions of the members and friends of the community. Rev. Pyle will look at some of the implicit visions that have held Unitarian Universalist congregations, and challenge us to turn our implicit assumptions into an explicit understanding of the mission, vision, culture, and identity of our congregation, in this time of looking to the future.
Rev. David Pyle is our congregation’s UUA Staff Primary Contact as a staff member of the Central East Region of the UUA. He is a UU Minister who has served congregations in Texas, Illinois, Michigan, and California. He has also served for the last 10 years as a member of the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps. He serves as the UUA Staff Primary Contact for the congregations of Central Pennsylvania, Greater Baltimore, and the Delmarva Penninsula, and serves the region as the Governance, Arts of Ministry, and Large Church consultant.
