This week at uuworld.org: Meet the GA blog.
I introduce the magazine's General Assembly blog, where I'll be providing daily updates on the business of the Unitarian Universalist Association's annual gathering Wednesday through Sunday. Suzanne Meyer describes the Unitarian history of St. Louis, a city where Unitarians founded many civic institutions after establishing a Unitarian church in 1835. (I was surprised to realize that the denomination has never before held its annual meeting in St. Louis.)
In the news, Michelle Bates Deakin covers the ceremony in Jerusalem last week commemorating Martha and Waitstill Sharp, cofounders of the Unitarian Service Committee, as Righteous Among the Nations for their work to save Jews and others from the Holocaust. Sonja Cohen tracks media coverage of the event at the news blog. She also finds a 15-minute radio interview with UUA President Bill Sinkford that you will want to listen to. (Scroll down to Show #24, June 9, 2006.) It's the most extended interview with Sinkford I've come across, and he talks about everything from Unitarian Universalist history and theology to the Association's advocacy work.
