UUA General Assembly 2018 – June 20-24, Kansas City, Mo. – “All Are Called”

Grounded in a deep belief that we are all prophets, Unitarian Universalists ask, “How can we faithfully meet the demands of our time?” The call to witness and act for justice in our society and in the world is clear. So, too, is the call to examine our structures and practices, dismantling and transforming those which fail to recognize the full humanity of all people and to honor the interdependent web of life. Come to the 2018 General Assembly in Kansas City to dive deeply into questions of mission for our Unitarian Universalist Association, for our congregations and communities, and for each of us as individuals. Together, we’ll ask:

  • Who and how are we called to be at this time, individually and collectively?
  • How are we called to act and to live?
  • How does our Unitarian Universalist  legacy strengthen us in living out our mission? In what ways does our legacy present challenges and impediments to answering our call?

Having the General Assembly in Missouri gives our church a special opportunity to fully participate. Come and join us and be inspired by the energy of thousands of UUs from across the U.S. Find more information at https://www.uua.org/ga.

What’s Happening Soon

Film and Discussion: Puerto Rico – 3 p.m. April 29

Everyone is invited to a joint presentation of a film and discussion about Puerto Rico sponsored by our Social Action Team and Show Me Dharma at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 29, in the Sanctuary. Light refreshments will be offered.

This will also be a fundraiser to help Puerto Rico rebuild and create sustainable agriculture projects. The devastation caused by Hurricane Maria seven months ago is still having widespread ill effects.

For more information, email Caya Tanski-French.

Kaleidoscope pagan gathering

We call to the elements: Wind and Water, Sun and Soil, and we say that these represent aspects of our lives: Our Minds and Emotions, our Passions and our physical Being. They offer us strength and vulnerability. They can be blessings or curses. How do we find that dynamic balance between them that will move our lives forward in wellness and purpose?

Gather with Kaleidoscope on Saturday, April 28, at 6 p.m. at the home of Connie and Jeff Ordway. We will be outside, weather permitting, so dress with that in mind. We will join in ritual, followed by a potluck and friendship. All are welcome, no matter what your personal path.

Send an email for directions and further information.
