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. Join us in Kansas City as we 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?
The call of our faith has a place for each of us. Join us in Kansas City to build courageous, collective leadership with tools, skills and connections.
WomenSpirit Funky Fun Shop
Now in the Religious Education Building great room you will find a donation box for the WomenSpirit Funky Fun Shop. All proceeds go to the scholarship fund!
Please donate ‘out of the ordinary’ items that are clean and in good shape. Good sellers are: ethnic items, jewelry, scarves, music, and hip, handmade items. These items do NOT sell: jeans, purses, shoes, and knick-knacks. Please NO books. If you have something that won’t fit in the box or need more information about WomenSpirit, then please contact Sara Thomas.
The Light will now be archived under the website’s News tab. This idea results from a suggestion by Marie Sauter and serves a number of purposes. Since the online newletter is dynamic and services and Roundtables roll off as the weeks go by, the archive will serve as a permanent record of these activities. If you like to print out copies of the Light, you’ll never miss a complete version since they will be kept in the archive. Finally, our Light Editor Emeritus, Elwin Nunn, always kept copies of the Light for historical reference, which we think is an excellent practice.
