Religious Humanism Journal: Call for Submissions

We hope all UUHA members enjoyed our most recent edition of the Journal of Religious Humanism. The time has already come for our journal editors to plan for our first issue of the new year. If you have ever been interested in submitting an article for our journal, we have your next opportunity:

Theme for Vol. 49, Issue 2:

How We Live Out Our Humanism

We are looking for stories of how your life is impacted by your humanist values - something that you “do” that expresses your humanist identity. Examples might include personal commitments, relationship building, or communal endeavors.

Tell us about your Humanist group’s community service, or an unusual family tradition; an occasional gathering of friends to pursue a common passion, or a solitary quest that reflects the best of humanism as you understand it. Read more about Religious Humanism Journal: Call for Submissions »

UUHA Annual Meeting This Saturday

This weekend the UU Humanist Association will hold its Annual Meeting. This is one of our organization’s most important events, as it gives the UUHA Board of Directors a chance to meet directly with its membership and it gives members a chance to vote on the proposed UUHA board election slate.

Information on what is expected at our Annual Meetings can be reviewed in the UUHA Bylaws (Article III).

Similar to last year, the 2021 Annual Meeting will be hosted via the Zoom Conferencing Application. We also plan to award our Person of the Year Award to ethical evangelist Jé Exodus Hooper. Read more about UUHA Annual Meeting This Saturday »

SAVE THE DATE: The UUHA Annual Meeting

Dear UUHA Members,

Each year the Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association Board hosts the UUHA Annual Meeting. This is a vital opportunity for members to meet directly with UUHA leadership. Items on the Annual meeting agenda include, but are not limited to, elections for open UUHA Board positions, announcement of our UUHA Person of the Year, and a chance to brief members on programming and general updates.

Last year's online Annual Meeting was a smashing success, with UUHA members nationwide able to join and engage in member business from the safety and comfort of their own home. For this year's Annual Meeting, we plan to meet online once again. Read more about SAVE THE DATE: The UUHA Annual Meeting »
