Show me the report!

I had the same response as Chutney: why isn’t the Commission on Appraisal report available online?

I suppose I could show up at a UUA-member congregation some morning and ask to see one — the congregations did get one free, right? And as a minister in fellowship, I might get one free. Maybe. These things have happened.

But it seems to be a good way to make sure as few people as possible read it. I’ve gotten every possessive of every book dollar and and every inch of shelf space.

That’s why it — or at least a rich executive summary — should be available online.

  1. According to the COA members at plenary last night, the congregational copies should be arriving next week. Here they have plenty of copies of the report but have sold out of the new hymnal addition.
