UUA General Assembly coming up- (On your computer screen)
Our annual meeting of Unitarian Universalists, General Assembly, is less than a couple months away, and UUA staff are busy preparing to make it a meaningful and memorable experience. The plan was to be in Providence, RI from June 24-28 with workshops, worship, and many other opportunities to connect in faith and community.
Instead everyone has the same chance to be at GA, since it is on-line. There is always interesting stuff. Among the many highlights in our programming lineup, I am particularly excited to announce today that Naomi Klein will give our Ware Lecture! Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and international and New York Times bestselling author of On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal. She is a regular media commentator in print, radio, and television and The New Yorker has called her “the most visible and influential figure on the American left—what Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky were thirty years ago.” I think we should plan on watching her. The Service of the Living Tradition is always good too. More plans and news in next month’s newsletter.
