  • Pretty good attendance at SatSvc recently, several Europeans, nice folks.

New Business

  • Congregational vote to adopt 8th principle? Congregational vote to include current Principles in our Bylaws?
  • Proposed 8th Principle language: We value the cultural diversity, communication, and cooperation of all social groups; we hope to extinguish misconceptions, stereotypes, discrimination, and other oppressions in ourselves and in our institutions.
  • Do we explicitly include racism? ableism? Xenophobia? Agency? Right to choose? Gender identity? Other things we are “uncomfortable to talk about”?
  • National proposal: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

Next meeting: March 23 at the little meeting circle near Sanctuary.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:17 pm SLT.

Parking Lot
(revisit or delete)

  • FOR NEXT MEETING, Should we as a congregation endorse the 8th principle? Sofia will take it as a topic in her series on the principle on December 29 so we should wait one more month before we discuss it at the Leadership Group (says Sofia).
