Mid America Regional Assembly

Here’s something to look forward to if the cold is getting you down. April 17-19 UUs from our Mid America Region are gathering for Regional Assembly in Naperville, IL.

I just registered and it looks great!!

Friday evening there is an all-church Banner parade, opening worship, and nationally known UU keynote speakers. Saturday there is more from these speakers, a brief business meeting, and workshops. The 24 workshops range from Social justice organizing, information on making your church campus more green, multicultural programs for UU congregations, researching income inequality,  worship beyond the “sermon sandwich,” a new program for personal faith development, updates on the church of the future….and so on. Four meals are included in registration, and there is excellent children’s programming for the young ones. Several more worship services, entertainment and then a huge all community Sunday worship to close things out. Early bird registration (before 3/15/15) is $175 for all this, and there is a good price on hotel rooms. Indoor pool too for the family!

Join me and your fellow UUs from UUI and the entire Midwest for the fun and inspiration! I promise you will find it personally fulfilling. We can bring so many great ideas and resources back to UUI. I would love it if we had enough UUI participants to send a person to every workshop! That would be 24 people! Take a look https://www.midamericauua.org/ra and talk to me or David Jackoway if you can go.
