Y U U A?

The bylaws of an organization mostly focus on its “how”: the rules and procedures that govern its operation and decision-making process. With the Unitarian Universalist Association, the part of the bylaws most of us find most exciting is Article II, because it expresses the UUA’s “why.” Two weeks ago, the service asked about the “why,” the mission, of UUCPA and each of us individually. Today, Amy and Brian talk about the “why” of the association that we form with a thousand other congregations.

As any living organization does, we periodically revisit and revise Article II, and a proposed revision will go before the General Assembly of delegates in June.* So let’s ask: why does the UUA exist in the world?

Veronika will play jazz, the choir will sing a Beatles classic, and we’ll celebrate our connection to thousands upon thousands of Unitarian Universalists all over the country and beyond.

Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
