Theology at the UUA General Assembly.
Now that I have a printed program for the upcoming General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations —June 23 through June 27 in Fort Worth, Texas — I’m calling attention to a few programs I find especially noteworthy.
If you’re interested in liberal theology, what does the General Assembly program have to offer? Here’s my highly selective guide:
