Janine Larsen, District Executive and Diane Brinson, District Administrator, have posted a report from Regional Assembly, held April 26-28 in San Jose, CA. The event attracted nearly 700 Unitarian Universalists from the four districts of the UUA Pacific Western Region.
The article, on the front page of the PNWD website, provides a sampling of photos and reviews of Regional Assembly experiences, and also provides links to highly requested sermons and workshop materials. Included are the texts from the Rev. Christine Robinson, and the fun and inspiring testimony on “My Church,” from Elissa McDavid of Saltwater UU Church (Des Moines, WA).
PNWD Treasurer David Cauffman (UU Congregation of Whidbey Island, WA) confirmed that district dues for 2013/14 will increase to $25, and gave notice that dues will be $26 as of 2014/15. He also previewed the UUA’s “GIFT” pilot, which is replacing the per-member Annual Program Fund and District contributions in the Southern Region beginning July 1. Slides and text from the Treasurer’s Report and the full Annual Report, including election results, are available on the PNWD website.
The 2014 District Assembly was also announced, for March 14-16 in Spokane, WA. The Rev. Dr. Thandeka will provide a full weekend on Love Beyond Belief.
