Challenging Chapters March 19

Conversations in the Round with Rev. Pippin

This month’s discussion is on the Article II of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Bylaws, Principles and Purposes, is the foundation for all the work of our UUA and its member congregations and covenanted communities. It is the covenant to which all our congregations and covenanted communities pledge themselves when they become members of our UUA.

Our current Principles and Purposes were last revised in 1987. The UUA Board committed to
establishing this Article II Study Commission to consider possible amendments to this Article.
Want to know more and discuss the UUA Article II Study Report? All are invited to do so at this
month’s Challenging Chapters Gathering at 12:15 p.m. For more information, visit

copy at the Welcome Desk.


Once a month on third Sundays, 12:15 – 1:15-ish, Rev. Pippin will hold space for a calm circle conversation about change and finding our center. Conversation topic styles will alternate. 

  • On the third Sundays in Apr as well as the 4th Sunday in June, there will be a reflective conversation on “Challenging Chapters.” These conversations will reflect on a call or need for change, such as racism, transphobia, environmental crisis. Rev. Pippin will read an excerpt, but it’s best to read these in advance if possible. Copies will be available first and second Sundays at the welcome counter. 
  • On the third Sunday in May we‘ll gather for “Soothing Syllables” circles. She will read to you a meditation or poem about rest, centering, or peacefulness amid change. There is no preparation needed for this meeting, just willingness to listen and reflect.
