Visioning has everything to do with creating positive action. Visioning shifts our thinking to see what is possible and enlivens us to create what we can imagine.

Out of this darkness, a new world can arise, not to be constructed by our minds so much as to emerge from our dreams. Even though we cannot see clearly how it's going to turn out, we are still called to let the future into our imagination. We will never be able to build what we have not first cherished in our hearts.

Celebrate URI at 20 Years

To celebrate URI at 20 and help launch URI’s next 20 years, invite people to engage in the following question:

Thinking about your relationships within URI, what stands out as a time when you had the strongest sense of being surrounded by support, perhaps with one person, a small group, or with multitudes of people. What was happening and how did you feel? Imagine it is 2040 and the world has changed significantly. Imagine how URI has made a contribution to this shift. How can URI move toward this vision during this 20th Anniversary year? What can you commit to this year to help make this dream come alive?
