Whittaker Locke with a UU General Assembly report

Fellowship member Whittaker Locke, who also is our music coordinator, represented us at the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association in Portland, OR. We live in extraordinary and turbulent times, and this general assembly did not shy away from challenges.

Sunday service begin at 11 a.m., with pandemic measures in place. (See below.) Do join us a little early for coffee and conversation. Visitors are most welcome.

This year’s General Assembly tackled major issues facing UU and the nation as a whole. For example:

Three Actions of Immediate Witness passed: “We Do Not Consent: Rejecting Legal Challenges to Abortion” (99.7 percent of the votes in favor); “Antiracism and Reparations via Restorative Justice” (95 percent); and “Stop the Privatization of Medicare” (77 percent).

Whittaker also attended as many music sessions and workshops as he could. He’s profession worked toward a post-graduate “performance certificate” at the Schwob School of Music, so he took full advantage. In fact, he joined the General Assembly Choir and was chosen for a solo during the final service.
