Penultimate General Assembly thoughts.
What else will I talk about before I finally reemerge from the General Assembly bubble and notice that the Supreme Court has been thinking about the Ten Commandments and George W. Bush has been thinking about staying the course? Three major topics — hopefully before the weekend when my parents will be in Boston for a great July Fourth:
- Worship: The new Songbook and the way it was introduced deserve extended reflection. I'll be especially interested how home viewers perceived the music, because it was unmistakably intended to be televisual. Two sermons — by Rob Hardies and Patrick O'Neill — also demand attention. (I've been told that Burton Carley's Berry Street Lecture needs to be considered alongside these, and I'm looking forward to reading it.)
- "Frames": It was George Lakoff Sunday, and I will be spending a lot of time unpacking some of what Lakoff, Rebecca Parker, Rita Nakashima Brock, Davidson Loehr, Meg Riley, and Fred Garcia had to say about frames and liberal religion. If there's one CD to buy, I'd urge people to pick up the session with Lakoff, Loehr, Riley, and Garcia.
- Bloggers: What fun to meet so many other UU bloggers and to imagine some futures for these online forums! I'll have more to say on this topic, too.
G.A. was fun, but I'm glad to be home.
