Annual Interfaith Potluck Dinner
Art Show on Display at MLUC
Nasty Women Art Shows are popping up all around the country, raising awareness and thousands of dollars in funding for social issues. In total, “Nasty” artists from New York to Arizona and everywhere in between have raised more than $50,000 for reproductive health organizations thus far.
MLUC has followed suit, presenting its Nasty Women Express Themselves Through Art Show, April 23 through May 30. Invite your friends to the grand opening reception on April 30 at 2:00 p.m. to browse empowering artistic creations by local artists. A portion of proceeds benefits Planned Parenthood, and the president of the organization will speak at the event. With more than 50 artists presenting, you don't want to miss this!
In June of 2017 delegates to the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly will elect a new UUA President for a term of six years, succeeding current President Peter Morales.

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

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.
