In order to help congregations learn about and raise interest in General Assembly (GA), we have assembled these materials to download, copy, or print for further distribution. Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if there are other materials we can help you find.
General Assembly is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association. Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. Anyone may attend; congregations must certify annually to send voting delegates. The 2014 General Assembly will be June 25-29 in Providence, RI. Most General Assembly events will be held in the Rhode Island Convention Center.
Theme for 2014 GA: “Love Reaches Out” We believe that our faith provides a path for each of us to unlock our transformational capacity to serve the world with love. We will gather in 2014 to help our association live into a future where Love Reaches Out – to share our faith both within and beyond our congregations’ walls.
Outstanding Programming General Assembly will offer just shy of 200 programming choices over the 5 days of GA. The 2014 Ware lecturer will be Sister Simone Campbell, a religious leader, attorney and poet with extensive experience in public policy and advocacy for systemic change. In 2012, she was instrumental in organizing the “Nuns on the Bus” tour.
Providence is a Fitting Place for UUs to Gather Known as “The Creative Capital”, Providence is a vibrant Renaissance city. UUs will essentially take over the compact downtown, where you’ll find history, natural beauty and vibrant culture wherever you turn.
WaterFire Providence® On Saturday, June 28, the UUA will co-sponsor this community event and public art phenomenon. This is an amazing opportunity for us to participate in the local culture of our host city while simultaneously witnessing our faith.
Multigenerational and Inclusive There is an active youth and young adult contingent at GA. Scholarship and Volunteer Opportunities, Childcare, and Accessibility Services are available.
