NEW The Rev. Dr. Deborah Pope-Lance interviewed all three candidates on issues of misconduct. Those interviews are highlighted in the boxes above. 

The Lively Tradition blog ran a second set of interviews with each candidate. You can find those interviews here.

The three candidates have responded to five questions about international U/U engagement posed by the UU International Joint Working Group. Read their responses here.

On April 1st, the three candidates participated in a forum at Cedar Lanue UU Church. The recording of that forum is available below.

 

Please take the time to get to know these three impressive candidates. One of them will be the face of the UUA for the next six years and will provide both leadership and effective management of our denomination.

 

 

UUA Livestream to MLUC: April 1

Saturday, April 1, 9:00 a.m. at MLUC

This June at the UUA General Assembly, we will elect a new president of the UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association). There are three excellent candidates for this position: The Rev. Alison Miller, the Rev. Jeanne Pupke, and the Rev. Susan Fredrick-Gray.

On April 1, the candidates will participate in a discussion that will be live-streamed to our Main Meeting Room. There will be coffee and light breakfast foods. We'll stay on for a discussion of the candidates, voting procedures, attending General Assembly in New Orleans as a delegate, and more. In addition, we've invited members of the Greater Philly UU Cluster. This is a great chance to meet other local UUs and make a connection to the work of our denomination.

Membership Orientation: May 6

path and lawnIf you’ve been visiting MLUC for the last few months, or are just beginning to attend services on Sundays, please make note of the next Pathway to Membership Orientation date: May 6. It’s a couple months away, but when the warmer weather arrives time starts going faster and schedules fill up quickly. We hope this orientation will help those new to the church learn more about the community and get to know others on the membership path.

The orientation runs from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The schedule includes time with Rev. Jones, who will talk about UU history, and a session to explore the ways the work of the church is linked to its mission: Social Action, Pathway of Spiritual Maturity, Religious Education, volunteering, pledging, etc.

We’ll go on a Talk and Tour of the building and hear about some of MLUC’s rich history and future plans, as well as take part in a sample Small Group Ministry session. Participants will have the opportunity to get to know each other in addition to the staff and volunteer leadership in the church. For those ready to join, there will be an opportunity to do so on May 21.

Breakfast and lunch will be served. Childcare is available upon request by May 1. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Membership Coordinator, Jessica Hirsch Lynn ().


We hope to see you there!
