General Assembly in Louisville, KY: June 19-23, 2013

Tour of the General Assembly Exhibit Hall.

We sought to create a General Assembly (GA) in 2013 to move our Association “From Promise to Commitment.” Promises call us into relationship. The experience of making, breaking and remaking promises is the reality of our lived faith. We gathered in Louisville, KY, to examine and renew our covenant to our faith, one another, our congregations and the larger world.

Assembled 2013 eBook

Assembled 2013: Select Sermons and Lectures from the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association is only available as an eBook in the Amazon Kindle Store.

The major presentations of the 2013 GA. UUA President Peter Morales calls this collection “valuable not just for those who could not be in attendance but for people… who attended every one of these. There is much here that is worth re-reading with care and pondering in quiet, personal, unhurried times.” Includes the Berry Street Essay by Rev. Donald E. Robinson and the response by Rev. Art McDonald, the Ware Lecture by Eboo Patel, and sermons from the Service of the Living Tradition (Rev. Vanessa Rush Southern) and the Sunday morning worship service (Rev. William F. Schulz).
