UUA trustees meet in Boston, April 21-23.

Via UUA.org's What's New page, here are the reports and agendas for the Unitarian Universalist Association board meeting in Boston, April 21 through 23. The meetings are open to the public, as are the reports to the board.

Among the many very interesting documents the board will be responding to are the review of the "Pathways" large-church experiment in Texas and the related growth strategies update; the final report of the special review commission about the race-and-youth kerfuffle at last year's General Assembly (I helped write about the preliminary report in February); and a preview of the latest Faith Communities Today study of UU congregations (because I love data). You'll want to browse through the rest.

P.S.: If you care about the social justice resolutions the General Assembly passes each summer, here's your chance to jump in and help shape the UUA's proclamations: There's a vacancy on the Commission on Social Witness, and you can apply to fill it if you act by April 20.

I am surprised you didn't mention the lengthy (53 pages!) report on possibly consolidating M/L and SKSM.

Also, both the MFC report and the Growth Agenda mention the essay I wrote on growth that they didn't get around to discussing at their January meeting.

Thom, what do you think about the Pathways report? I found the report a promising start; it could have been much worse. Not sure it pointed to a clear new vision, but it captured much of the lessons that needed to be learned, and the best part is letting people know about the various models that are out there now in the church planting world where one size doesn't fit all. Much more to say and one of these days I will get around to starting that progressive church planting blog...blessings.
