Congrats to a UU College Student, who correctly answered today’s UU trivia question. There are two Congregational Study/Action Issues slated to appear on the General Assembly 2008 agenda. The first is “Ethical Eating: Food and Environmental Justice.” Proponents link ideas about ethical eating to the respect for “the interdependent web” that appears in the UUA Principles.
The second Issue is “Nuclear Disarmament.” This would be the 28th statement by GA about nuclear weapons. Proponents believe that the UU principles are currently “violated” by the presence of armed and targeted nuclear weapons in America and Russia.
