Provocative Propositions on Polity

A Self-Study Course on Congregational Polity

Based on Interdependence: Renewing Congregational Polity, the 1997 report of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Commission on Appraisal.

This course guides you through the report and provides opportunities to discuss the ideas presented with others. You may go at your own pace, and join whichever conversations you wish.

If you have questions, you can contact the Commission at coa @

Three quotes from each section of the report are provided (with links to the Interdependence report). Each section begins with a brief description, and discussion questions follow each set of quotes.

Part One: Congregational Polity in Theory and Practice

Part Two: Pressure Points

Conclusion and General Recommendations: Toward a New Community of Congregations
