Nearly 40 Unitarians from around the Midlands gathered at Shrewsbury Unitarian Church on Saturday 30th March, for the MUA’s Annual General Meeting. Our new President, for the years 2019 – 21, is Angela Maher, of Unitarian New Meeting Church, Birmingham.
After the business meeting and a delicious buffet lunch (organised by the SUC congregation) we enjoyed a thought-provoking service by Angela on the theme of loving our neighbour, which was complemented by our Guest Speaker, Karen Hanley, Parliamentary liaison person for Unitarians. Karen and her husband, Peter, got us all on our feet, moving into small groups to discuss past General Assembly resolutions we were passionate about, and to decide what we wanted to do about those issues, moving forward.
It was a rich and enjoyable day.
