The board of the Covenant of UU Pagans is very excited about the 2021 Virtual General Assembly this year. We have two outstanding program slots. The presentation brings back colleagues who have supported CUUPS since its beginning.
GA’s Summer Solstice Celebration
This event will feature chapters of the organization with a mix of individual members, the CUUPS board, and UU Pagan musicians. We will celebrate the longest day of the year. This sacred gathering reminds us of our connection to the natural world, other living beings, our planet, and the universe. We gather as individuals within communities in the world to heal, promote justice, and love one another in beloved communities.
If you are part of a CUUPS chapter we invite you to send photos of your chapters in worship, doing social justice work, or supporting your congregations. We are also looking for short video clips or images of members lighting and extinguishing chalices for the beginning and end of our Solstice video.
Voices of the Earth Panel
Today, we recorded the second program with our speakers Starhawk (Reclaiming Tradition), Selena Fox (Circle Sanctuary & Lady Liberty League), and Andras Corban-Arthen (The EarthSpirit Community, European Congress of Ethnic Religions (ECER), Parliament of the World’s Religions. and the Ecospirituality Foundation). Board Member Rev. Dr. John Gilmore (Om Prakash) was the moderator of the panel. Board members Cat and Debra joined us with some great questions.
They will share about their journeys as activists not only for those in earth-centered traditions but for their communities and the world’s interfaith landscape. They talk about their journeys, what brought them to the place they are today, and why each took on the mantles of social justice they support. Their successes, failures, and dreams for the future are also shared.
Visit our Virtual Exhibit Booth at GA
CUUPS is a Gold Sponsor of the General Assembly this year. We will have a virtual booth, information about our events, and other opportunities to meet up. This year is the first time CUUPS has had two programs in one General Assembly in many years, and we are clear we could not do it without all of our members.
