From the President's Desk
This month I'll be brief, as in a few short weeks we'll be together at our annual congregational meeting. There, we'll recognize several members of the church who have demonstrated exceptional dedicated service to the church. We'll present and then vote to approve the slate of officers for the 2013-2014 church year. We'll also present and vote to approve the budget for next year.
I'm excited for this year's meeting for three reasons:
1) This will be my first annual meeting in three years. I missed the last two due first to the passing of my grandmother, and then my wife graduating with her master's degree. Both good reasons, but I'm long overdue for a meeting!
2) I always look forward to the occasions when we all gather in the sanctuary. The Soul Cafe, the auction, and the annual meeting are three of my favorite events of the year.
3) I am always energized by the practice of our fifth Unitarian Universalist principle, our belief in the democratic process. It's that process that helped me know that a leadership role at UCN was right for me.
I said it in my annual report for the leadership board, I'll say it on the 19th, and I'll say it here: it has been a tremendous honor to serve as UCN's president. I thank you for your support, your honesty, and your commitment to UCN.
