General Assembly (GA) is where a few thousand UUs gather each year to worship together, learn from one another, and create a new vision of faith. This year’s theme is Heart Land: Where Faiths Connect. Across the globe, people are crossing borders of religion and spiritual practice to create wholeness in their lives. The labels—Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, humanist, theist and non-theist—are no longer the primary way we define how religion, spirituality, faith, and practice come together. In our quest to bring more love and justice into the world, we find ourselves in partnership with people following different religious and spiritual paths. The richness of those encounters deepens our faith, strengthens our work for justice, and encourages connections with those who are “spiritual but not religious.”
Each year GA is in a different part of the country — this year it will be in Columbus, Ohio, about an 8 hour drive from Binghamton. We’ll be arranging carpooling. GA is June 22-26 (Wed. – Sun.). Registration and housing reservations are at www.uua.org/ga.
