UUA Moderator and UUA President Issue a Joint GA Statement
Jim Key, Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) moderator and the Rev. Peter Morales, UUA president, issued this joint statement following the conclusion of the 53rd annual General Assembly in Providence, RI:
We are energized by the events of our General Assembly here in Providence where more than 4,600 Unitarian Universalists from all 50 states and around the world came together for worship, witness, and learning. From rappelling "over the edge" of the Rhode Island Convention Center to reaching out in love at WaterFire to singing at this morning’s worship service, we have been inspired by the collective energy of our faith community.
At the meetings of your UUA board of trustees here in Providence, we engaged in the business of the Association and grappled with the challenge of a budget shortfall. Your board and the administration are committed to working together to overcome this short-term challenge.
In more ways than we can name, we saw Unitarian Universalists reaching out in love. We are grateful for the continuing faith and generosity of you—our congregations, family, and friends. Your gifts of time and treasure show us exactly how Unitarian Universalism can make a real difference in our lives, our communities, and our world. Thank you.
