What’s on your mind, what’s on your heart, what can you do about it? We live in difficult times. Let’s talk! Join in with other members of OSLC in a Zoom based “Listening Session.”
More than ten years ago, members of OSLC met to talk about and plan for what would become the United Valley Interfaith Project, a nonprofit organization composed of multiple local faith-based organizations. One of our first tasks was to hold “Listening Sessions” with our OSLC congregation members and hear what was on their hearts relating to their personal needs and the needs of our Upper Valley communities. Then we went to work with UVIP to develop teams to address the needs that were identified such as affordable housing, reliable transportation, affordable healthcare, a moral economy with living wages, employment, mental health services and many others.
After years of faith-based community organizing, UVIP is changing. As of June 30, 2021, it will no longer exist as weknow it. Over the past year its faith-based members have worked to consider and discern joining forces with UVIP’s sister organizations, the Granite State Organizing Project in NH or Vermont Interfaith Action, to continue our work.
In anticipation of this change, we once again look to the members of our congregation for guidance by sharing the important issues that are on your minds and on your hearts by participating in a Listening Session. Please join in. A session will range from 60 to 90 minutes. A Zoom meeting link is provided below for each Listening Session. Choose which date you prefer.
