Our UU Principles and Purposes revised?

The UUA’s Commission on Appraisal is charged with reviewing Article II of the UUA Bylaws every 15 years. This probably seems obscure, but the article includes the Principles and Purposes that you have no doubt seen many times.

The Commission asked for and received lots of comments from the UU congregations about the original version and now has a draft of changes it is recommending. The Commission would like your comments before finalizing those changes. The UU World recently published an article on this process.

Copies of the new Article II will be in the office on Sunday and handed out as an insert in the Order of Service. You’ll find information there about how to send your comments in. This is a great way to participate with the greater movement in a process that will affect how people learn about UUism for years to come.

I don’t know if this was true for you, but the most common way people learn about our faith is through the Principles and Purposes, so do take the time to read the revised version.

See you in church!
