The Change We Hope to Bring

The Change We Hope to Bring with Rev. Phillip Lund

A Special Visit from our UUA Advisor!

From the largest denomination to the smallest congregation, religion in America is in the midst of inevitable change. Religious affiliation, church membership, and worship attendance has steadily declined since the turn of the century, while the number of adults who identify as religiously unaffiliated continues to grow. Will we be dispirited by the uncertainties of change, or inspirited by its possibilities? Will our vision for a better world be narrowed by fear, or widened by hope? How we respond to change will determine both the future of our religious communities and the future of our faith tradition.

Phillip Lund has over twenty years of experience serving congregations in the areas of faith formation and spiritual growth, first as a religious educator in Bloomington, Indiana, New York City, and Chicago, and most recently as a congregational life consultant working for the MidAmerica Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago and a certificate in InterSpiritual Counseling from One Spirit Learning Alliance in New York. Phil currently lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, Julia, and their son, Henry David.
