This year’s denominational gathering called General Assembly was very different, to say the least. It all happened on ZOOM for one thing allowing greater access and accessibility to the democratic process we value so greatly. The theme this year was Rooted, Inspired, and Ready focusing on the institutional change needed to counter systemic white supremacy in Unitarian Universalism. In 2017 the UUA Commission on Institutional Change was charged with studying this issue. The study was completed and recommendations reported on this year in “Widening the Circle of Concern.” We will learn more about this report and how it’s recommendations apply to UUCC. This is an opportunity to learn more about how we can be supported by and support our denomination in taking the important steps to live out our values in the world.
