"Leadership Development with a UU Spiritual Core" will be the theme of the 2012 District Assembly, to be held in the Chicagoland area at the Marriott Oak Brook Hills Resort on April 27-29. Because you asked for it, we are going back to having a full weekend DA -- and the Banner Parade returns!
Friday night's opening ceremony will feature special guest Rev. Bill Schulz, president of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and past president of the UUA. Rev. Marilyn Sewell will be our keynote presenter on Saturday morning. She has been interested in the theological and spiritual dimensions of leadership development for some time and is looking forward to exploring this with us. There will be two sessions of workshops on Saturday afternoon and then in the evening, we will show Rev. Sewell’s documentary film, “Raw Faith.” http://movies.nytimes.com/2011/06/24/movies/raw-faith-review.html. Read more about Rev. Sewell in UU World or on her website.
Sunday morning, the winner of our DA Sermon Contest will lead a worship service open to all. There will be lots of music throughout the weekend, opportunities to connect with old friends and meet new ones, and times for spiritual reflection.
Rev. Sewell's documentary DVD is now available online via Amazon.com.
