President's Letter 3/2003
Dear American Unitarian:
would like to take this opportunity to ask you to volunteer to help the
American Unitarian Conference achieve its goals.
The American Unitarian Conference operates with no paid staff and
on a small budget. We need
your help to grow American Unitarianism as quickly as we all would like
and to bring a living American Unitarian religion to as many people as
we can. There are many ways
to help. We need people to help us edit scans of classic Unitarian
works. We need people to participate in the Adult Religious Education
Committee and the Youth and Children’s Religious Education Committee
to identify existing curricula or to develop or edit new curricula from
an American Unitarian perspective.
need help recruiting new individual or congregational members.
We need area coordinators willing to talk to local folks about
the AUC and, perhaps, to hold periodic get-togethers or, in time, launch
fellowships, churches or AUC groups within existing churches.
We need help with AUC annual meeting logistics and regional
need writers to pen good, thoughtful and spiritual essays for this
journal or for our web site. We
need people that live in cities that have libraries with good Unitarian
collections to research what is available to us from the Unitarian past,
including sermons, religious education materials, books and the like.
We need folks to help with our hymnal project and to help put
together liturgical materials for use by congregations.
we can make a huge difference. But
the officers and directors of the AUC need help if we are to succeed in
preserving and then growing a god-centered Unitarian religion for
ourselves, for our children and for our larger posterity.
May God be with you always.
Yours in faith, freedom and reason,
David R. Burton
