Gordon Gibson, the president of the UUHS, recently sent out a newsletter. Here are the main points. First, Dean Grodzins, the editor of the Journal of Unitarian Universalist History, is working on a new issue that should be available before too long.
Second, the UUHS lost its independent affiliate status with the Unitarian Universalist Association, as did most other affiliates. Gibson does not believe that this will have any effect on the work of the UUHS. In keeping with the UUA’s suggestion that former affiliates look for ways to band together in useful coalitions, the UUHS is exploring networking with the Unitarian Universalist Women’s Heritage Society, the Religious Education History Group, and the Universalist Heritage Foundation. In fact, an idea floating around is to hold a Unitarian Universalist History Convocation with some of these or related groups.
UUHS workshops at General Assembly 2007 were well-attended and the booth ran smoothly.
Finally, the UUHS is discussing ways to expand the Society’s online presence. For those who haven’t visited the UUHS website, here is the link: http://www25.uua.org/uuhs/ Please note that it hasn’t been updated recently.
