In Liminal Time:
Transition Stories

In some circumstances, the interim time may be the perfect time to try new ideas and ministry models. Later publications of In Liminal Time will go into depth about how to balance interim work with the birth of new models.

The Birth of the Binghamton Family Ministry Model
Are you considering a move toward family ministry, and wondering what that transition might look like for you? Here’s one congregation’s story. By Ann Kadlecek, ​the Transitional Director of Lifespan Faith Development from 2016-2018.

This work has sparked ideas and conversation about intentional congregational change, especially during a defined time period, such as an interim. Those ideas will be the subject of a chapter in the upcoming book In Liminal Time: Exploring Interim Religious Education in Unitarian Universalist Congregations, edited by Michele Grove, Lily Rappaport, and Deb Weiner to be published in 2019.

The In Liminal Time portion of the website was made possible by a LREDA Twenty-first Century Grant. We are grateful for their vision and support of this work and all elements that support excellence in religious education leadership. Find out more at on how to become a LREDA member.
