Sermon delivered by Janet Holden on July 8, 2012. Janet has been a “GA Junkie” ever since she attended her first General Assembly in Nashville in 2000 when her luggage got lost. She realized that she could buy a different UU T-shirt in the Exhibit Hall every day and still fit right in. Since coming home from the 2010 GA in Charlotte, she has been working on the Congregational Study Action Issue, Immigration as a Moral Issue. The decision to attend the Justice GA this year, held in controversy in Phoenix, AZ, was not an easy one for many reasons. Janet will explore what this GA means on a personal, spiritual level as well as what it means for our UU faith.
Janet Holden and her husband Tom Barnes have been members of the congregation since 1988. She received a Certificate in Congregational Health Ministry from Andover Newton Theological School in 2008. Janet has served on the UTUUC Board and is currently a member of the Unity Temple Choir. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
