#UUAGA 2013 is over

I didn’t attend the UUA General Assembly in person, but did follow along online as best as I could. Time to digest, and think of what happened. Also, I’m inspired to start a side project, but more about that later, too.

What about you: thoughts, observations?

  1. I thought that the LREDA report on excellence in shared ministry was an important and constructive piece of business at professional days. On the negative side, I found some of the tone and rhetoric of other portions of GA to be a bit sectarian. Particularly around religious education I heard way too much about the need to “form our children with a UU identity”. I think it is important that our children and youth have are grounded in our history, traditions, and practices; but the emphasis on identity has erie echos with my own history growing up in a sectarian Lutheran body. Merely adopting a particular denominational label as part of your cultural identity does not produce good ethics, or fruitfull spirituality.
