What Matters to You? Matters to Us provides essential reflections on core themes of the United Church of Christ, while inviting new and long-standing members alike to consider their own identity and faith formation.

Six central themes invite engagement:
1) We Are People of God's Extravagant Welcome
2) We Belong to Christ
3) We Are a People of Covenant, a United and Uniting Church
4) We Are One at Baptism and the Table
5) We Thank God by Working for a Just and Loving World
6) We Listen for the Still-speaking God

A seventh chapter offers historical examples.  The United Church of Christ's Statement of Faith and the Preamble to the Constitution are also included.

Sidney D. Fowler is a consultant who assists congregations to become centers of spiritual formation through worship, sacraments, prayers, education, the arts, and spiritual discernment. Currently, he directs the lectionary project for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC); is interim pastor of Hope United Church of Christ, Alexandria, VA; and teaches with Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation.
