    On being a (virtual) GA delegate

    My first experience as a delegate to the Unitarian Universalist Association GeneralAssembly – How in the world would I know how to vote?

    Message from the Minister

    Beloveds, As Unitarian Universalist, we support personal agency, bodily autonomy. We recognize that all bodies are sacred! We are called by love to work of liberation.
