Update and Vision

The UUA Board appointed a Study Commission to suggest wording to change the bylaws at General Assembly June 2018. The First Principle Project was asked to serve and Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner will participate in this commission (which has not met yet).

One of our First Principle Project congregations, along with help from the congregations in Athens, PA and New Orleans, LA, and the Commission of Social Witness, submitted a Study Action Item to be brought to General Assembly,  June 2018.  For a current copy of it, go here. It is titled, "Dismantling Intersectional Oppression."

The Vision:

Understanding the inherent worth and dignity of 

every being, Unitarian Universalists live deeply in 

joy and compassion, nourishing themselves as 


nurture, care for, and protect the many others in a 

multispecies world.

Read this letter from Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner to see what the First Principle Project is about and why we Unitarian Universalists will nurture ourselves and others by taking up the call to bring our principles to life
