- "Social justice work within Unitarian Universalist congregations is deeply related to our response to marginalized groups, both within our congregations and in society at large."
- "Some members dislike congregational social justice action for fear of divisions and conflicts . . . This fear is not unfounded. . . . Yet we must not let our fear of division be the determining factor in social justice work."
- William Gardiner: "The idea that the church should take no position on moral issues seems to be self-contradictory—for taking no action is in itself a form of action."
- Do you think that congregations can and should take positions on public issues?
- Do you agree that the Unitarian Universalist Association should also take public stands?
- Is the General Assembly sufficiently representative of the congregations to act on their behalf?
- How would you make it more representative?
