Pastor's Weekly Wonder - May 22, 2020

Dear Friends,

The annual General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association is entirely online this year, from Wednesday 6/24 to Sunday 6/28.  The General Assembly brings together members from most of the continent’s UU congregations – some coming on their own, some as voting delegates – to learn, share, and make some decisions about how the Association should serve its foundational congregations.

 

I hope you will go immediately to the UUA website for GA (uua.org/ga and also uua.org/ga/programs) to see what this year’s Assembly is focusing on and offering.  A considerable part of the focus seems to be our Unitarian Universalist and American heritage from the Pilgrims who arrived here 400 years ago with such vast impact on this continent and its peoples.

 

You can attend a number of the events in June just by clicking in.  But to have access to the full range of amazing speakers, programs and interchanges for all ages, you’ll have to register ($150).

 

I’d particularly like to suggest that on Sunday June 28th we all join thousands of UUs from around the country and world for the Sunday Worship Service at 10:00 a..m.   I believe that the GA Sunday Service will be accessible through the UUA.org website – but we’ll make sure you know.  Based on past experience, I expect it will be a magnificent experience.  And in subsequent weeks (including that Sunday afternoon), I hope we will arrange a good number of follow-up discussions about GA and its explorations and decisions.  I think every group we have within UUSP will find topics of special interest.

 

 In the meantime:   Stay caring.  Stay in touch.  Blessings for the week,
