MUUSJA's General Meeting 2014:
"Faithful to the Work of Justice: 
How Our UU Identity Informs Social Action"
Ocurred Sunday, November 9
The White Bear Unitarian Universalist Church

Why have Unitarian Universalists so consistently worked for progressive social justice causes throughout our history?  How do our shared UU beliefs, history, theology and principles inform how we struggle for justice today?  What do our traditions and beliefs call us to work toward as individuals, and as a broader community of faith?  This year, join Unitarian Universalists from across the state for MUUSJA's General Meeting, featuring a program that focuses on the intersection of our identity as Unitarian Universalists and our shared yearning for a more just and loving world.  

Our program will feature a short opening worship, small group reflection, highlights of our work this past year, an opportunity to hear about MUUSJA's vision and direction from our new Executive Director Ashley Horan, and an engaging presentation from our Keynote speaker:


The Keynote Faith & Justice Address:

"Drawing on our Faith Traditions to Guide Our Social Actions" by Mark Ritchie, MN Secretary of State

Everyone has a life journey that includes many different influences along the way. Mark Ritchie, Unitarian Universalist and outgoing Minnesota Secretary of State, will talk about his faith traditions and how they have guided his public service, reflecting on these influences as he steps forward into a new chapter after the end of his term.

Mark Ritchie's speech at the MUUSJA general meeting was inspirational and thoughtful. After telling us about his upbringing as a Southern Baptist on hot summer days at his parents house he went on to challenge UUs to face their role in the eugenics movement in the early 20th century. Ritchie  continued to praise UUs for their social jutice work and that part of improving the world is acknowledging past mistakes and doing the best with what we have so that we and our progeny can enjoy a world improved from the way we found it.
