Advertisement in UU World (Pomona)

  • Motives discussed; little interest evidenced, objectives questioned.

  • Etaoin suggested exploration of relationships with CLF at General Assembly should come first.

  • Pomona will investigate costs of World Magazine ads.

  • Zyzzy suggests “recognition” might result in rules being imposed on FUUCSL; he is “rather unfamiliar with what the UUA requires of congregations that call themselves UU.” Pomona relates history of FUUCSL’s previous exploration of becoming an official UUA congregation; at that time it would have been necessary to be incorporated in the real world. It was deemed too complicated, too expensive, too problematical. Etaoin reminds us that CLF is currently the only congregation that can exist in more than one District.

General Assembly

  • Those going to GA discussed meeting and possible contacts regarding CLF.

  • Objectives of a close relationship with CLF are discussed and questioned.
