This issue of the MidAmerica Messenger is full of useful information about General Assembly in Spokane, Washington (June 19-23), Midwest Leadership School in Decorah, Iowa (July 14-20), and the Spiritual Leadership Retreat in Cincinnati, Ohio (August 3-8). And while there isn’t another article in this issue about next month’s Regional Assembly in Saint Louis, Missouri (April 5-7), you can get full details about it on our website: https://www.uua.org/midamerica/ra.

I have learned that I often demonstrate a level of insensitivity without, at times, being aware of that insensitivity.
