General Assembly comes to Columbus Ohio in 2016!
General Assembly, the annual meeting of the Unitarian Universalist Association, will be just a few hours down the road in Columbus Ohio this year. Registration is now open. At General Assembly, attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process.
The theme for General Assembly 2016 will be Heart Land: Where Faiths Connect. The faith world is increasingly multifaith. People are crossing borders of religion and spiritual practice to create wholeness in their lives individually and collectively. The labels—Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, theist and non-theist—no longer define who or what we love, or how spirit moves in our lives. Leaders and communities of many faiths will assemble to worship together, learn from one another, and create a new vision of faith that no longer divides us, but connects us to an interdependent future that works for all.
The 2016 General Assembly will take place over June 22-26 in Columbus, OH. Most events will be held in the Greater Columbus Convention Center. A variety of lodging options are available.
The 2016 Ware Lecturer will be author, NPR radio show host, and journalist Krista Tippett.
There are scholarships and volunteer opportunities to defer the cost of participating. Ask if your congregation can offer financial assistance. We are collecting for a Youth to GA Fund that will be available for anyone in grades 9-12.
