Article 2 Study Commission
Article 2 of the UUA bylaws, which includes the principles and sources and is required to be reviewed every 15 years, is being reviewed now by a study commission that is co-chaired by incoming Interim Minister Rev. Cheryl Walker. They are likely to recommend substantial changes at next year’s GA and they would like feedback at this point in their process. They have some draft language and there are discussions with different UUs in the videos from GA below in going to post to help people think about the possibilities.

Introduction to the work, Purpose, and Freedom of Belief in General Session II (beginning with Dan McKanan’s theological framing at 20:35 and our presentation at 32:30)
Values and Covenant in General Session III (our presentation begins at 24:15, followed by a break, and then Dr. Elías Ortega’s theological framing, which begins at 1:29:20)
Inclusion and Inspirations in General Session IV (our presentation begins at 33:00, followed by a break, and then Rev. Dr. Sofía Betancourt’s theological framing at 1:20:34)
They closed their feedback hub for these presentations on July 18, but that doesn’t mean your chance to offer input is done. They will continue to offer opportunities to contribute to the process of reimagining Article II throughout the early fall. Watch for more information on how you can be involved!
