Large Congregations Conference 2008 Event Coverage
In March 2008, 306 people from 53 large Unitarian Universalist congregations, and from the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) staff, gathered in Louisville, Kentucky, for the Seventh National Large Congregations Conference. The Conference is held triennially.
During the Conference several worship services, a few presentations, and thirty-two workshops were presented, in addition to a one-day theme presentation. Some of the content from these sessions is included here in this coverage.
