Goals Versus Intentions with Rev. Jim Coakley
About the Message: Tis the annual season of hopeful resolve followed quickly by disappointment. Phillip Moffitt, a renowned vipassana (insight) meditation teacher helps us better comprehend the difference between goals and intentions. Ironically, maybe we should be setting New Year’s goals to become more intentional?
About the Speaker: Rev. Jim Coakley’s UU roots are grounded in the remarkable story of the Fox Valley Unitarian Uni-versalist Fellowship in Appleton, Wisconsin. As this congregation grew, so did Jim; initially as a lay leader and then a lay minister. Jim graduated from Meadville Lombard Theological School in 2015 and was ordained by his beloved congregation in 2016. His efforts in helping local UU congrega-tions connect and collaborate are remarkable.
