I have just registered for the 2021 General Assembly to be held virtually in June. Last year’s quickly organized online gathering of our faith movement proved to be an extremely valuable experience. This year, the whole Assembly will again be online and will offer an opportunity for more UUs to take advantage of the accessible venue.
Here’s the description of the event as presented on the UUA website:
General Assembly is the annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists, where we conduct business of the Association, explore the theological underpinnings of our faith, and lean fully into our mission and principles. That remains true even when we cannot gather physically. Last year, GA had more than 4,900 registered attendees participate from remote locations around the world. Although we give up the face-to-face interaction and hugs that are prevalent when we meet in-person, we retain our dedication to community and make our experience more accessible and more environmentally sustainable.
If you were considering attending, I’d love to talk with you. Our congregation is allowed four delegates to vote on business and the UUFD Board of Trustees may be able to pay for some of your registration if you serve this way. There is also other financial help available.
If we gather a team from UUFD to attend, we will be able to bring back programs and ideas to our congregation to serve our mission in our coming congregational year.
Always in the Love,
