Discussion of Article II at April Forum

Sunday Service-Forum, April 28, 2024, UUSRF April Forum: Article II, Submitted by Paula Lugar

We will be talking about Article II. The proposed revision will be voted on at the General Assembly (GA) in June.

Paula Luger from UUSRF will be attending the GA as a UUSRF Delegate. She will cast a vote on the revision and suggest an amendment if there is something we want to propose. The UUSRF April Forum (Sunday, April 28) will help her represent your thoughts and opinions.

Here are some questions we can think about to get dialogue started in the April Forum:

● What does Article II mean to UUSRF?

● How did we go from 7 to 6 principles in our covenant?

● What is a covenant?

● What about the 8th Principle?

To prepare for the April 28 Forum, please review the following information:

The simple summary of the work is that our current 7 principles plus our proposed 8th

principle will be combined into 6 principles. Sunday, when the announcement was made about the forum, one attendee asked for homework to learn more about Article II. Don Leake shared his resources below so we can learn as much as we want to before the forum.
