Khasi Hills Unitarians elect new leaders

The Unitarian Union of North East India held elections for members of its Executive Committee on Sunday, May 5, 2008. Reverend Pearl Greene Marbaniang described the results with the phrase "Youth Brigade Takes Over Reins of UUNEI," and quoted Wordsworth as an introduction to a report of the election sent to international friends of the UUNEI:

“Bliss was it that dawn’d to be alive;

But to be young was very heaven”

Truer words were never written! The election represents a generational shift in the UUNEI's leadership. Congratulations to:
  • Reverend Derrick Pariat - New UUNEI President
  • Reverend Helpme Mohrmen - New UUNEI General Secretary
  • Reverend Darihun Khriam - UUNEI Treasurer
  • Reverend Pearl Greene Marbaniang - New UUNEI Asistant General Secretary
May their every effort be blessed as they pursue the UUNEI's motto: To Nangroi! (Keep Progressing!). Those who attend the UUA's General Assembly in Fort Lauderdale will have many opportunities to meet the UUNEI's President and Assistant General Secretary, both of whom expect to be at GA. And, for congregations that would like to engage with Unitarian partners from the Khasi Hills, there are two UU organizations that can be of assistance: Sponsor-A-Student (SAS) invites Unitarian Universalists to assist the Education Committee of the Unitarian Union of North East India in sustaining and continuing developing its School system. In this work faithful international relationships are also created. Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council (UUPCC) fosters and supports church-to-church partnerships between Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists around the world. Among the regions that the UUPCC has experience in this work is North East India.
