Help Us Fulfill Our Vision! A Message from our New President

Dear UU Humanist Members and Friends, 

Happy December!

I'm so honored to be the incoming president of the Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association Board, and I'm excited to share with you a little bit of my vision. But I have to start with thanks‐‐to outgoing president David Breeden, who suggested that I move into this position; to the previous president John Hooper, who recruited me for the Board in the first place; and to all my fellow Board members. You can see their names listed at the bottom of this letter‐‐they represent different parts of the country, they are lay and ordained, they are longtime UU Humanists and new to the movement, and every one of them is fantastic.

A Message from the President on GA and Board Elections

Dear Unitarian Universalist Humanists:

It was great meeting so many of you at our Black Humanism panel, our booth, and our Annual Meeting at General Assembly. Mandisa Thomas, founder of Black Nonbelievers and our Person of the Year, was an inspiring speaker.

Our General Assembly 2018 session on Black Humanism not only demonstrated the centrality of Humanism in the African American experience, but also the centrality of Black Humanism as Unitarian Universalists strive toward the liberation of all people.

I think that Rev. Dr. William R. Jones will someday soon be recognized as the central UU theologian of the twentieth century. His message harkened back to the deepest commitment of the Humanists who signed the first Humanist Manifesto, dedicating themselves to striving for “a shared life in a shared world.” Read more about A Message from the President on GA and Board Elections »

Apply to be a UUHA Ambassador

Dear UU Humanists:

The Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association (UUHA) Board of Directors appreciates the work that you do to promote humanism within your congregation. As the number of non-theists continues to rapidly increase in the US, we believe Unitarian Universalist congregations will thrive in the future only if programs that appeal to humanists, atheists, agnostics and religious naturalists expand. In order to facilitate this, we are initiating a new Ambassador Program.

Join UU Humanists at UUA General Assembly

UU Humanist Members and Friends:
 
General Assembly 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri (Wednesday, June 20-Sunday, June 24) is going to be big.  Our GA panel—cosponsored with the UU History and Heritage Society—is titled “Black Humanism in Unitarian Universalist Context and Beyond.” That takes place on Thursday, 1:30-2:30:00 pm in the Kansas City Convention Center, room 2502 B.
 
Black Humanism developed within a Unitarian context but spread far beyond. The panel will consider UU ministers Lewis McGee, a 1940s Unitarian minister in South Chicago, and 20th century minister William R. Jones, and how their work continues today. We conclude with a powerful voice of Black Humanism from outside the UU context. Speakers include Rev. Patrice Curtis, Rev. Karen Hutt, Rev. Dr. Nicole Kirk, and Mandisa Thomas.
