It’s that time of year again! Soon thousands of UUs will be descending upon Charlotte, NC for the UUA’s 50th General Assembly.
General Assembly, GA, is our yearly meeting of congregations where we come together “to take part in the governance of our Association, to build together a vision for its future, to learn from each other, to work, talk, play, and imagine together, to grow together” (from the opening of the General Assembly Program 2010).
The Green Sanctuary program traditionally has a presence at GA. Robin Nelson (soon-to-be Environmental Stewardship Director, for Congregational Stewardship Services) will be attending, leading workshops, meeting with leaders, hostessing a Green Sanctuary Reception, co-leading a Plenary Chalice Lighting, staffing “the booth”, and available at GA.
For a listing of all of environmentally-related offerings at GA:
- check out the Environmental Justice Programming on page 8 of the Program. (This includes the Green Sanctuary workshop)
- check out our ad on page 66 of the Program.
The Green Sanctuary Program falls under the portfolio of Congregational Stewardship Services which is part of the larger Staff Group called Congregational Life. As such, I will be in the Congregational Life “booth” #721 in the Exhibit Hall. If you have questions for us you can stop by “the booth” and leave a message for me and I’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as we can.
See you at GA!
