UUCWC Prepares for General Assembly

by Holly Bussey, Liaison, Denominational Affairs

June will be here before you know it when our UUA General Assembly (GA) will meet in Pittsburgh. There is still time to register and attend. To date, Alison Streit Baron, Holly Bussey, Jennifer Ciccolini, Heather Edwards, Jim Sanders, Dan Tuft and Robin Pugh are attending as delegates. Heather will attend virtually. Maria Baratta and Jane Root are attending as non-delegates.

Topics for discussion at GA this year include the Article II discussion and re-casting our UU Principles into a more relationship/covenantal based format centered around the tenet of Love. Rev. Kim spoke about the proposed Article II changes just a few weeks ago. Listen to the sermon here. Also be aware that there will be discussion circles and your delegates want to hear from you, and what you think about the proposed changes. To provide feedback, email DA@uucwc.org or talk to any of us on Sundays.

We will share more information in upcoming weeks. The Ware Lecture speaker this year is Imani Perry. The Ware Lecture will take place at 7:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, June 24. Only those registered for in-person attendance can attend the event in Pittsburgh. In-person or full virtual registration is required to live-stream the presentation on June 24, or to access the video on-demand when it is posted.

Please consider attending virtually or in person. In the meantime, let us know what interests you and what you’d like to know more about. For more information on programs etc., look here or email DA@uucwc.org.
