Have you witnessed a starling flock in flight? These flocks -- called murmurations -- move as one, turning, twisting, diving, and pulsing. Each starling is an individual, and yet they are connected together to form a larger and magnificent whole. Starling murmurations are a beautiful example of an interconnected community.
What if we, as UCC churches in the Central Pacific Conference, were connected like starlings?
The Starling Project is an opportunity to gather and exchange stories across the conference. What you are longing for in church and what’s possible? What are pressures, needs, hopes, desires and passions for your church community and for us together as UCC in the Northwest?
Thanks to everyone who came, listened and shared. You are part of a magnificent whole.
Let’s be church together, come and take flight.
Purpose of These Conversations
To come and feel connected, feel surprised, be a part of “this is the work of my church”, meet others and strengthen the web that connects us. To listen for the power of human spirits connecting with each other and with the holy.
To hear many diverse voices across the conference about what people are longing for in the church, what’s possible, their pressures, needs, hopes, desires and passions.
Conversations that blur the distances between us, illuminate the abundance in our community and nurture it, and to foster connections and relationships (connect people who share a passion for particular ministries).
Hopefully leading to a more dynamic and spirit led formation of flight as a conference, Image of starlings – moving together, connected by the Spirit.
