As our annual General Assembly comes to a close, we share a special message of gratitude and apology from UUA President the Rev

As our annual General Assembly comes to a close, we share a special message of gratitude and apology from UUA President the Rev. Sofía Betancourt, PhD. We echo her words of love for trans, intersex, gender diverse, queer, Muslim, Jewish, Arab, disabled, and BIPOC beloveds particularly, and the yearning for a process that could enact less harm in the future. We hope all will read her message in full and reflect on it as it relates to their own experience at our annual gathering.

GA Sunday Worship, led by the Rev

GA Sunday Worship, led by the Rev. Molly Housh Gordon and many other Unitarian Universalists, was just spectacular. We remain moved by the service and Rev. Gordon's beautiful words and we share this excerpt in that spirit:

“We UUs know the whole-woven web, joy and sorrow, hope and despair, and at our best we are rooted in it, and we are sustained by it, and there is nothing woven that we need to fear.

…And that’s where our power lies:

In depending on each other, and knowing we depend on each other and being unafraid to depend on each other, because it’s all woven so tight, because everything depends.”

From the sermon “Weaving our Lives” by Rev. Molly Housh Gordon, of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbia, MO.

Love at the Center: New UU Statement of Values Passes after Momentous General Assembly Delegate Vote

The votes are in for the 2024 UUA General Assembly! Article II changes, three Actions of Immediate Witness, one Responsive Resolution and our Business Resolution have all passed. We are deeply grateful to all who held this imperfect but faithful process with care, especially our Co-Moderators, Board of Trustees, UUA staff and volunteers. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to move outward from here, with all of you, finding new ways to live our shared values, centering love in all we do.

Love at the Center: New UU Statement of Values Passes after Momentous General Assembly Delegate Vote. The years-long democratic process culminated with debate and the GA vote. A two-thirds majority was required for approval.

After a democratic process involving thousands of Unitarian Universalists discussing the faith’s values and core theology over the past three-plus years, delegates at General Assembly 2024 voted decisively to approve a new statement of values and beliefs for Unitarian Universalism.

https://www.uuworld.org/articles/uua-article-ii-passes-general-assembly-result-unitarian-universalism-bylaws-vote-values-statement

“This is a historic moment for Unitarian Universalism, as we move our living tradition forward to focus on shared values that will help promote liberation, radical inclusion, and communal care both within our church and across society,” said UUA President Rev. Dr. Sofía Betancourt.

The faith’s new expression of shared values was adopted by a vote of 2,025 (80.2 percent) to 499 (19.8 percent) with 21 abstaining (.8 percent) at General Assembly 2024, held online June 19-23.

The new values are Equity, Generosity, Interdependence, Justice, Pluralism, and Transformation, centered around Love.

A two-thirds vote was required to approve the changes. Four amendments were also voted on, but only one was ultimately incorporated. Two amendments would have added additional Values: "Reason and the Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning” and “Peace as a UU Value,” but were voted down. The other two were proposed edits to the description of the Shared Value of Equity. One would have added “Equity calls us to listen, understand, respect, and respond to one another” but failed to gain enough votes.

The only incorporated amendment changed the Equity description to read, “We declare that every person is inherently worthy and has the right to flourish with dignity, love, and compassion.”

UUs at congregations across the country engaged with the proposal over the past several years, including through GA workshops, small-group meetings, board workshops, board meetings, and the Amplifying the Charge program, launched in early 2024 to prompt dialogue and intentional study about the proposed bylaws changes. The UUA offered several resources for congregations as they considered what was most vital to the faith.

The statement of values reflects changes to Article II of the UUA Bylaws, which include its “Principles and Purposes” as the foundation of all the work of the UUA, its member congregations, and its covenanted communities.

Reviewing core values is a faithful act that expresses Unitarian Universalism as a “living tradition,” said Carey McDonald, executive vice president of the UUA.

Unitarian Universalist Association bylaws mandate that Article II be reviewed every fifteen years. It has been revised numerous times over the history of the UUA, with the last wholesale revision in 1987.

In 2020, the UUA Board of Trustees appointed an Article II Study Commission, which received input from thousands of UUs around the country before presenting, in early 2023, a proposal for changes to Article II. An overwhelming majority of delegates at GA 2023 voted to advance the proposal for more study and reflection by UUs (a simple majority was required under the bylaws) and to create the opportunity for UU congregations to propose amendments to the proposal, before a final vote at GA 2024.

Individual UUs and their congregations are welcome to continue to hold and value the Seven Principles and Six Sources, which were adopted in 1984, as a meaningful part of the faith, just as some have adopted the Eighth Principle on their own, McDonald said. The Eighth Principle specifically calls out antiracism and anti-oppression as central to congregational life and UU values.

Visual descriptors for the visually impaired

There's a movement among UUs (and I guess the liberal community in general) that any public speaker will begin by providing a self-description, for the benefit of any visually impaired people in their audience. My own congregation started doing this recently when a legally blind person started attending. (I'm unsure how involved she was personally in starting that practice with us, but I do know our minister started recommending it be done, and doing it herself, once this person started attending.)

Example, if I were introducing myself: "I am a middle-aged white man with greying brown hair and a bald spot, wearing a plaid shirt and blue jeans, and I use glasses."

It's always bugged me for some reason, and I think I've figured out why. A couple of reasons.

I'm not blind, but I do have a visual impairment in the form of reduced color vision (I hate the word "colorblind" because it implies black-and-white vision, which most of us don't have.) It's not something you would necessarily know about me unless I bring it up.

But for the people who do know this about me -- it hasn't happened much but it has happened, that people I meet decide I need a description of what they're wearing. I get they're trying to be inclusive, but when it happens to me as a non-blind person it feels really patronizing.

I also put the question into Google to see what other people are saying about it. I found several corporate DEI boards who are recommending it. I also found a thread over on /r/blind where they talked about this practice. It's a couple of years old, but it was the only place I found from within the Blind community -- the only place where their voices are centered. It was a small sample but it was mostly unanimous, they don't want this. They feel it's a distraction.

With one noticeable exception - if your physical appearance is relevant to what you're talking about, then go for it. They used the example of a presentation on wheelchair accessibility, it would be useful to know if the speaker themselves is actually a wheelchair user. Other than that, they recommend avoiding the practice.

Anybody else have any experience/thoughts on this question?

Unitarian Universalists to vote on updated covenant, values at 2024 General Assembly

Religion News Service reports on the historic decisions being discussed at our annual General Assembly in this story by Kathryn Post:

“Unitarian Universalists’ dogma-free approach to spirituality isn’t all that sets them apart from other American denominations. As the faith group gathers online this week for its 2024 General Assembly, the most pressing item on the docket isn’t women’s ordination or LGBTQ+ inclusion, but whether to adopt a revised version of the denomination’s covenant clause, otherwise known as Article II.”

Read the full story from RNS at https://bit.ly/3RFPbDR

(RNS) — To Unitarian Universalists, changes to the denomination’s covenant clause are weighty, and occasionally fraught.

UUA President the Rev

UUA President the Rev. Sofía Betancourt, PhD offered these words during her President's Report to General Assembly yesterday, affirming:

"I believe that living every day in our faith offers us a through-line, a thread, that keeps us connected to one another and grounded in our values when the world is on fire. Keep hold of the thread, Beloveds. Times of unknowing are what religious community is for."

#UUAGA


Re-sharing a poem here that I shared in my President’s Report to the 2024 UUA General Assembly because it speaks to me of the strength of our living tradition.

I believe that living every day in our faith offers us a through-line, a thread, that keeps us connected to one another and grounded in our values when the world is on fire. Keep hold of the thread, Beloveds. Times of unknowing are what religious community is for.

The Thread
By William Stafford

There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.

Single young adult attending for the first time.

I am a woman in my late 20s, living in a small city and looking for a community. I’ve been thinking about joining a church for several years and recently came across the local Unitarian Universalist church. This feels like it could be a good fit.

I don’t have a great relationship with my family and don’t have any close friends. I’m really lonely and feel very disconnected from everyone. I have a strong faith that’s a mix of spiritualism and paganism with a foundation in Christianity and some Buddhist ideals. I know what my beliefs are, but the best way I can find to define myself is a truth-seeker.

I have a lot of social anxiety. Going alone to any event, let alone a church I will consider joining, is daunting. A big concern is that I won’t find people to click with because of my age group. The church seems to have a demographic starting at 30-somethings with children through older adults. Will I be out of place? I’m also worried I’ll be pressured to join the congregation or their groups/donate financially. I don’t have a ton of experience with church in general.

I’ve been going through a change in my life over the last few weeks and feel particularly sad. I’m trying to encourage myself to actually go tomorrow. Any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated. TIA
