Well, perhaps not excitement. When I reflect on my Unitarian Universalist Association-weighted experience of denominational conventions, I think more of the endless walking and spending more money than I have.
But something's going on in Minnesota's Twin Cities.
The General Convention of the New Jerusalem (Swedenborgian Church) holds its 186th General Convention from June 23 to 27 at the University of Saint Thomas, in St. Paul; the ministers are already meeting.
At about the same time in Minneapolis, at the Minnesota Convention Center, the UUA General Assembly meets. Much more about that over the next few days. Remember the hashtag, #uuga (Kinsi: sic' em, woof, woof, woof.)
Then at the same place even more stoles over street clothes -- a look I hate, if anyone cares -- with the 219th Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly, from July 3-10.
