UUA’s Article II Study: What Do We Believe? How Shall We Guide Our Work?

Come join our Service on Sunday, February 26th, 11am in person (face masks encouraged) or by Zoom.

In 2020, the Article II Study Commission was established by the UUA Board and charged to review the UUA Bylaws, Principles, and Purposes and, with “the active participation of UUs across all demographics, identities, and theological/philosophical beliefs,” propose revisions that will help “enable the UUA, member congregations, and covenanted communities to be a relevant and powerful force for spiritual and moral growth, healing, and justice” and “guide us in the transformation of ourselves, our communities, and our faith, into active networks of collective care, restoration, and justice.”
Join us Sunday, February 26th at 11:00a.m. as we explore the proposed changes to Article II–the covenant to which we pledge ourselves when we become members of the UUA and the foundation of all of the work undertaken by the UUA and its congregations and communities.

Hope to see you in person at the UUFA or via Zoom!

Please join us.

Join Attorney Jessie Roberson and Retired Attorney Patrick McGee for a Zoom Watch Party of the U.S. Supreme Court’s oral arguments in Gonzales v. Google, a case that’s challenging social media algorithms known to steer us to extreme content in an effort to keep us online as long as possible to increase advertising revenue of the social media companies.

That’s the docket of Gonzales v. Google, the US Supreme Court case with links to SO VERY MANY AMICUS BRIEFS, to be argued February 21st.  Note: It’s the only case argued that day, and the court website says “court convenes at 10am” and “oral argument is for 70 minutes”—beware the timings could change. The case was brought by the family of a 15 year old girl killed in Paris during a terrorist attack that her family says was egged on by social media.  From the petition for writ of certiorari, “The question presented is:
Does section 230(c)(1) [of the Communications Decency Act] immunize interactive computer services when they make targeted recommendations of information provided by another information content provider, or only limit the liability of interactive computer services when they engage in traditional editorial functions (such as deciding whether to display or withdraw) with regard to such in- formation?
From the February 7th, reply of the family located here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/21/21-1333/254251/20230207191257813_GonzalezRepyMeritsPrinted.pdf “in the period leading up to the 2015 terrorist murder of petitioner’s decedent Nohemi Gonzalez, respondent made targeted recommendations of ISIS recruiting and fundraising videos.”Topic: Watch Party for US Supreme Court oral arguments in Gonzales v. Google

1. We create our Greensheet newsletter on WordPress, and it then ALWAYS automagically appears on our website, under the Greensheet tab, here: http://uuathensoh.org/home/the-greensheet/

2. If you have a Facebook account—even one you never use—you can see our Facebook events and send us messages via our Facebook account at https://www.facebook.com/uuathensoh

3. Currently, we email the Greensheet to those with emails in our Elvanto church software. Not everyone who signed up on WordPress is on our Elvanto list. We’re looking for a volunteer to make sure those two lists match. If you want to be on our Elvanto list, email wendasheard@yahoo.com



Please email items to wendasheard@yahoo.com and put “Greensheet” in the subject line.

When we receive blurbs and descriptions of a Sunday service, we publish within 24 hours, as well as create and share a Facebook event and email the Greensheet to all with emails in our Elvanto system. Thanks in advance to all presenters and others who submit information early.

Deadline for each week: SUNDAY 3pm or before publication, whichever comes last. We hope to get the Greensheet out, our Facebook event for the next week posted, and more each Sunday evening or Monday at the latest. Thanks!



The next UUFA board meeting will be Saturday March 11th at 10:30am by Zoom. All members are welcome to attend. For the Zoom link, text Richard 740-818-4775, or contact any other board member.
