UUSC President in Kenya

Thanks to Daniel Harper's blog, I've learnt that the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is blogging on its president's humanitarian visit to Kenya. One of the members of the UUSC-UUA delegation to the troubled African country is Rosemary McNatt, a minister in New York and also part of the teaching staff that the ICUU will send to Nairobi next month to help fledgling, emerging Unitarian congregations in Africa find their own liturgical and organizational strenghts to build stronger communities of faith.

This is one of the ways that different U+U organizations are increasingly working together internationally to bear witness of our liberal faith beyond the small borders of our churches and countries.

New Skypecast

This just received from the UUA International Office:

There will be a SkypeCast held on January 23, 2008, entitled “What’s Happening in the Alphabet Soup?”

The purpose of this SkypeCast is to help inform UU congregations about each of the UU organizations that lead our movement’s international engagement. Representatives of each organization are invited to share a 5-minute update during the SkypeCast that describes:

· The mission of their organization

· The current priorities of their organization

· Particular opportunities for congregational involvement that their organization offers

Following the reports there will be a “questions and answer” time with the listening audience.

The SkypeCast will take place from 8:00 - 9:00pm Eastern Standard Time.
