Like most of us, the UU Church of Bloomington (IN) was looking for a new way to hold an inspirational canvass. So they tried something new they learned from First Universalist Church of Minneapolis (MN), a ONE DAY canvass that was a day-long party and celebration with multiple activities and events involved. Learn how they planed for and managed this event, what challenges they faced, how members responded, and what happened when the dust settled and all the pennies were counted.
Speakers: Rev. Mary Ann Macklin, Rev. Scott McNeill, Rev. Sharon Dittmar
