From My New (temporary) Kentucky Home
I have been in Kentucky since Friday night, visiting family over the weekend and since Monday participating in the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association’s Chapter Leaders training and then Ministry Days. General Assembly starts tonight and the laity are filling the streets, hotel lobbies, and standing in long lines to pick up their delegate badges. It is hot here, and I have been “drinking from a fire house” of soul-satisfying worship, helpful advice, inspiring speakers, and engaged conversation with passionate colleagues. There is already so much to process, so many ideas I want to bring back to Utah and try, and the week has barely begun.
Thursday evening we will witness for environmental justice and clean energy (along with the local Interfaith Power and Light group, the Sierra Club, and likely other groups as well.) Tim De Christopher and Wendell Berry are both speaking at the event. How awesome is that!
