We invite you to come to the UUA General Assembly (GA) 2011, June 22 – 26, in Charlotte, N.C. This will mark the 50th anniversary of the merger of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America. Our Thomas Jefferson District is the host for this historic event, and Annette Marquis, our district executive director, has challenged us to send as many members and friends as possible. An added incentive for this GA is that the keynote speaker will be Karen Armstrong, the noted theologian and author of “A History of God.”
We know the costs of attending GA can be prohibitive for some, and so a scholarship fund has been established to help defray the costs for those who need assistance. The fund currently stands at $500, and we hope others will help it grow.
Four people have already signed the chalice at HUU where we are marking our progress in committing to attend the UUA General Assembly next June. As you are ready, we invite you to add your name to the flame of the chalice as we get “fired up” about going to GA in Charlotte in 2011.
As part of GA, you can Experience wonderful and uplifting worship services as well as hear terrific speakers. You might also choose to participate in our democratic process as the business of GA is conducted.
