As you think about places you might want to visit this summer, consider the General Assembly(GA) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). UUs from across the country and the world gather at GA to conduct the business of the association, worship, hear outstanding talks, take part in workshops, and have fun. This year’s GA takes place from June 20 to June 24, 2018, at Kansas City, Missouri. You can find information in the General Assembly section of the UUA website.
The UU universe also has a wealth of camps, retreats, and conferences that you might want to attend. For example, our Senior Minister, Rev. Bill Gupton, and some members of Heritage are heavily involved in SUUSI, the Southeast Unitarian Universalist Summer Institute. Other Heritage members return each year to the Midwest Unitarian Universalist Summer Assembly. We also have members who have attended the Ohio-Meadville District Summer Institute. Our Assistant Minister regularly attends a gathering of religious educators at Ferry Beach. In the past, we have had people go to The Mountain. You can find a listing of these and others, with relevant links, at the UUA’s webpage of Camps, Retreats, and Conferences.
