Join us online for the largest annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists (UUs) joining in worship. This powerful, communal worship experience will stream on Sunday, June 25, 2023, at 11am ET/9am CT/9am MT/8am PT. It will be the opening service for the UUA General Assembly (GA). Members of the public are welcome to view the service. There will be no in-person service in San Miguel de Allende on June 25.
The Office of the UUA President, the Rev. Susan Frederick Gray, is pleased to announce that the Rev. Manish Mishra-Marzetti, Senior Minister of the First UU Congregation of Ann Arbor, MI will lead the 2023 Sunday Service at the GA.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Rev. Manish Mishra-Marzetti serves as Senior Minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is a co-editor of «Conversations with the Sacred: A Collection of Prayers» (2020) and the 2018-2019 UUA common read, «Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and the Environment.» He has served extensively in Unitarian Universalist leadership, including as a member of the UUSC Board of Trustees; the UUA Board of Trustees; President of DRUUMM (our UU people of color organization, Diverse and Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries); Commissioner on the UUA Commission on Appraisal; Secretary of the Board of Starr King School for the Ministry; and an author and advocate of the 2007 General Assembly resolution confronting gender identity-related discrimination. He brings to the ministry his multicultural experience serving as a U.S. diplomat during the Clinton administration. Rev. Manish loves desert hiking and his amazing kids and husband.
Each year, a talented group of choral singers performs at the Sunday Morning Worship for the General Assembly audience.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal faith inviting its community to gather around a set of harmonizing values and principles for living. Our UU Fellowship welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Belief in a divinity is not the central issue around which we gather for worship and generous action. Rather, we come together with a belief in community, love, compassion, social justice, reverence for nature, and the spirituality of music, all within the interconnected web of existence.
