The major presentations of the 2018 Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly (GA) in Kansas City, Missouri. Addressing the theme "All Are Called" at this General Assembly, Unitarian Universalists dove deeply into questions of mission, discussing how Unitarian Universalists can faithfully meet the demands of our time. In her foreword, Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, writes, "I commend to you this collection. Each of the speakers issues a challenge to take the call of our faith seriously and reassures us that, in community, we have all we need to do so. As I said in my sermon on our last day together that week, this is no time for a casual faith and no time to go it alone."


The collection includes the Berry Street Essay by Rev. Meg Riley, with responses by Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt and Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen; the Sophia Lyon Fahs Lecture by Juana Bordas; the Ware Lecture by Brittany Packnett; the Sermon for the Service of the Living Tradition by Rev. Sofia Betancourt, and the Sermon for Sunday Morning Worship by Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray.

Sermon for Sunday Morning Worship
Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray

"We live in difficult times in our movement, in our country, and in the world. Sofia Betancourt says that the past year has been 'filled with lamentation.' We have witnessed, suffered, and sometimes inflicted heartbreak and pain. We need each other to remind us of our humanity and to call out the best in us.

Brittany Packnett cautions us that although 'the tearing down is sexy,' 'the freedom comes in the building.' She asks us to use whatever platforms and privilege we have to ask our neighbors who are struggling to be heard, 'What do you expect of me? And how do I meet your expectations?' She asks us to live into a 'spirit of expectancy' in which we examine our every word and deed for how it upholds oppressive systems or promotes love and justice. What can we build together when we expect more from ourselves and our communities?

How are you and your community answering the call to act, love, resist, and create in this perilous and hopeful time? What can you do today to help heal the world?"

—from the foreword by Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray
